Metaphysics by Aristotle

Metaphysics (Greek: τὰ μετὰ τὰ φυσικά; Latin: Metaphysica; lit: "the beyond the physical") is one of the principal works of Aristotle and one of the first major works of the branch of philosophy with the same name. The principal subject is "being qua being," or being insofar as it is being. It examines what can be asserted about any being insofar as it is and not because of any special qualities it has. Also covered are different kinds of causation, form and matter, the existence of mathematical objects, and a prime-mover God.
