Abstract

In Metaphysics α.1, Aristotle presents a general image of human knowledge, describing its limits, conditions and historical realisation. This image serves as a background for defining the nature of the first philosophy, i.e. metaphysics, noting its essential relationship to truth and the causal order of the world. This contribution offers a commentary on this chapter, preceded by a brief introduction to the book α.
