Description of Thomas Aquinas, author of Commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics:
Of all Thomas Aquinas's commentaries on Aristotle, that on the Metaphysics is in many ways the most intriguing. For most of the twentieth century, Aristotelian studies were governed by the claim of philologists that the Metaphysics is a compilation of disparate materials, probably made by someone after Aristotle, and that the order of the books cannot be taken to represent any literary unity.
