Edward Feser is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Pasadena City College in Pasadena, California, USA. His many books include Scholastic Metaphysics: A Contemporary Introduction, Aquinas, and the edited volume Aristotle on Method and Metaphysics.
With characteristic clarity and panache, Feser argues that the
principles of Aristotelian and Thomistic philosophy, especially
metaphysics and the philosophy of nature, are not challenged by
developments in modern and contemporary science. Indeed, Feser
thinks that a proper understanding of the natural sciences
discloses the enduring value of these very principles. The book
offers an excellent analysis of many of the key philosophical
questions that lie at the heart of discourse about the implications
of the physical and biological sciences. It is a very important
resource for philosophers and scientists."

"Scientists seek explanations for why nature is the way that it is. In this engaging and thought-provoking book, Ed Feser provides explanations both for why contemporary science is the way that it is and for why modern scientists think in the way that we do. It would be a pity if scientists did not read this book. It would help them realize that their often unacknowledged philosophical assumptions and idiosyncrasies actually reveal that they are closet Aristotelians at heart."
