Coughlin's introduction and critique of other translations is interesting. However, I eventually became sick of his using translations like "substance", which means material, for ουσια, meaning being. So I switched to Sachs, who uses the less misleading "thinghood".

Forget the supreme A, Aristotle gets right into the genesis of A implies B. He dismisses the type of stuff upon which Kant made a living: "Some people even question whether they are real or not." If there's a one single whoa out of this, it's his succinct conclusion about the passing on of successful traits an entire era or two ahead of Darwin. The general topics for the remainder of the required selections in turn address the basis and definition of place, time (established by "before" and "after," motion (existing in as many ways as there are "is"), infinity (that from which something is taken always results in something being left), and rotation (the primary motion).

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192835866, Paperback)

For many centuries, Aristotle's Physics was the essential starting point for anyone who wished to study the natural sciences. Now, in the first translation into English since 1930, Aristotle's thought is presented accurately, with a lucid introduction and extensive notes to explain the general structure of each section of the book, and shed light on particular problems. It simplifies and expands the style of the original, making for easier reading and better comprehension.
