  • This volume presents a new critical edition of the Greek text of Historia Animalium, Aristotle's largest and least studied work, by one of the foremost scholars of Aristotle's biological works and their philosophical significance. This posthumous edition has been completed for publication, with its Introduction expanded and updated, by Allan Gotthelf in consultation with specialists on various aspects of the project. Based on a study of every surviving manuscript, this edition is a considerable advance on previous texts.

    • Professor D. M. Balme was one of the foremost authorities on Aristotle's biological works and their philosophic significance
    • Scrupulously prepared for publication by Professor Gotthelf

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a major work of scholarship dedicated to one of Aristotle's least studied treatises. It is not likely to be overtaken by other work dedicated to this subject for a long time to come. ...indispensable for the study of the Historia Animalium." Religious Studies Review
