Topics in Aristotelian Natural Philosophy

This seminar will offer a close reading of two of Aristotle’s sub-
lunary natural philosophical texts, the On Coming-to-be and Passing-
away and the Meteorologica.  Topics include potential and actual
being in mundane physics, Aristotelian elemental theory, matter and
form as causal theories, and meteorological phenomena.  Some reading
in Aristotelian biology will also be included.
