A series of texts by Aristotle, On the Heavens, On Generation and Corruption, Generation of Animals, Parts of Animals I, and History of Animals I make up some of the authors thoughts on the world we live in. Written by one of the most well known philosophers in history, ti is a great wealth of knowledge for those interested in a variety of topics.
The topics of these texts include the natural world, the thinkers ideas on psychology, and concepts of higher powers. An interesting read for those even without an interest in philosophy for its wide range of concepts.
For the texts On the Heavens and On Generation and Corruption see the translation from J.L Stocks. The translation is quite modern and very succinct, which is great for those new to the text and those who want the purest read possible. For Generation of Animals & History of Animals I, Parts of Animals I, The Hackett Classics edition is the one to go for. Hackett does a great job with ancient text and this translation is no different. There’s a good amount of notations but they don’t get in the way of the text as a whole. Also, it allows a reader a seamless transition from text to text which is a definite plus.
