This third volume in the Rutgers University Studies in Classical Humanities is closely related to Volume 2, Theophrastus of Eresus, in that it too reflects a new and growing international interest in Aristotle's successor as Head of the Peripatos. Seventeen scholars from six countries are contributors. Special attention is given to Theophrastus' work on natural science, in particular the surviving treatises On Smells, On Stones and On Fire. His ground breaking studies in botany are also brought to the foreground as is his role as a prototype ecologist. Theophrastus'physics and metaphysics are considered from various angles: his analysis of place, the character of his short work on metaphysics and this work's relationship to the larger Aristotelian treatise. In keeping with Theophrastus' almost universal interests, there are also contributions dealing with ethics, relegion, and rhetoric
