M and N, the last two books of the Metaphysics, are Aristotle's only sustained venture into the philosophy of mathematics. This volume includes the complete text ofM and N along with 170 pages of commentary that provide a clear introduction for students. Focusing on the books' continuing philosophical interest, Annas presents an invaluable guide to this unjustly neglected part of Aristotle's thought.
"Dr. Annas's translation is clear, readable, and accurate....An enjoyable volume, stimulating both as intellectual history and as philosophical argument."--Times Literary Supplement
