An in-depth study of the texts of two of the most famous texts of ancient philosophy, of Plato's dialogue, the Parmenides, and of Aristotle's treatise, the Metaphysics.The first has been an enigma to readers for twenty three hundred years; the second has had many and various interpretations. The key to their understanding is found here in their structure. Their meaning and value is their precedent for modern studies of the "mind-body" and "mind-brain" controversies. A technical treatise intended to elucidate the texts themselves, it nevertheless endeavors to be accessible to the amateur reader.
