Aristotle - index for METAPHYSICA Book 11 Part 7

The science of being qua being and existence apart

  
Paragraph 1 Every science seeks certain principles and causes for each of its objects - e.g. medicine and gymnastics and each of the other sciences, whether productive or mathematical.
Paragraph 2 There is a science of nature, and evidently it must be different both from practical and from productive science.
Paragraph 3 Since there is a science of being qua being and capable of existing apart, we must consider whether this is to be regarded as the same as physics or rather as different.
Paragraph 4 One might raise the question whether the science of being qua being is to be regarded as universal or not.
