Aristotle: On Generation and Corruption: (Forgotten Books)
Aristotle On Generation and Corruption - Forgotten Books Author:Aristotle Book Description: — "On Generation and Corruption (also known as On Coming to Be and Passing Away) is a treatise by Aristotle. Like many of his texts, it is both scientific and philosophic (but not necessarily scientific in the way modern science is). The philosophy, though, is dependent on the scientific; as in all Aristotle's works, the ... more »deductions made about the unexperienced and unobservable are based on observations and real experiences.
The question raised at the beginning of the text builds on an idea from Aristotle's earlier work The Physics. Namely, whether things come into being through causes, through some prime material, or whether everything is generated purely through alteration.
From this important work Aristotle gives us two of his most remembered contributions. First, the Four Causes and also the Four Elements (earth, wind, fire, and water). He uses these four elements to provide an explanation for the theories of other Greeks concerning atoms, an idea Aristotle considered absurd." (Quote from wikipedia.org)
