This deep dive into natural science through Aristotle's physics is from Senior Fellow, David Arias who teaches Philosophy of Nature in the Magnus Fellowship. What is nature and what makes a thing natural? Nature vs. art. Science as knowledge through causes. What's a cause? Understanding the four causes (material, formal, efficient, final). Mobile being as the subject matter of natural science.
