The task of Essay 4 is an expository one. You’re going to describe the basic outline of Aristotle’s Metaphysics.

(Note: Write ¶1 last.)

In ¶2, you should define what the project of Metaphysics is. Explain what Aristotle’s task is, what he thinks the importance of the subject is, and perhaps (for style points) why he thinks at least one of the approaches described in book 1 fails to answer the questions raised by Metaphysics.

In ¶3, you should describe and explain Aristotle’s defense of the legitimacy of “first philosophy” in book IV. Describe the worries Aristotle raises in book IV, and how Aristotle resolves them.

In §4, you should describe and explain Aristotle’s argument in book VII that the being of something is its essence, and that the essence of something is its form.
