This book takes up the central themes of Aristotle's metaphysical theory and the various transformations they undergo prior to their full expression in the Metaphysics. Aristotle's metaphysics is bedevilled by classic puzzles involving such notions as form, predication, universal, and substance, which result from his attempt to adapt the various requirements on primary substance developed in his earlier works so that they fit the very different metaphysical picture in his later work

Yet Aristotle insists that no universal is a substance.

This paper sketches counterparts in Aristotle's text to our theories of expression and of truth, and on this basis inquires into his treatment of sentences assigning an individual to its kinds. Yet Aristotle insists that no universal is a substance.

In Aristotle’s early theory in the Categories, the criteria for determining what is most of all substance are all tied to two canonical forms of predication, relating a subject to its kinds (including, where the subject is a substance, to its substantial kinds), or in the case of a substance, to its accidents. But this analysis offers no technique for inquiring after the inner structure, if any, of the subjects it identifies as basic: individual substances such as the individual man or the individual horse (Categories 2, lb4–5).

Frank A. Lewis presents a closely argued exposition of Metaphysics Zeta-one of Aristotle's most dense and controversial texts. Examples of this approach include my Substance and Predication in Aristotle (Cambridge University Press, 1991). It is commonly understood to contain Aristotle's deepest thoughts on the definition of substance and surrounding metaphysical issues. But people have increasingly come to recognize how little Aristotle says in Zeta about his own theory of (Aristotelian) form and matter.

This book takes up the central themes of Aristotle's metaphysical theory and the various transformations they undergo prior to their full expression in the Metaphysics. Aristotle's metaphysics is bedevilled by classic puzzles involving such notions as form, predication, universal, and substance, which result from his attempt to adapt the various requirements on primary substance developed in his earlier works so that they fit the very different metaphysical picture in his later work. Professor Lewis argues that Aristotle is himself aware of most if not all of these difficulties and in the Metaphysics works hard to ensure the coherence of his theory. He presents Aristotle's views as a formal theory complete with axioms, definitions, and theorems.
