Summary

King explores the reflection in both Plato and Aristotle on styles of causal explanation in the explanation of nature, and examines several texts in which they react to theories of natural necessity in this context. He also reviews the influence of Werner Jaeger’s scholarship on the question of Aristotle’s relation to authors in the Hippocratic Corpus.
