About Liberty Fund:
The text is in the public domain.
Fair use statement:
The text made use of in this translation is that of the Rev. J. B. Mayor in the Cambridge University Press. Words bracketed in that text have not been translated. In some few cases they have been indicated in a footnote.
I should like to express very fully my great obligations to Mr. Mayor’s commentary. My best thanks are also due to him for the personal kindness which he has shown in reading through my translation, and enabling me to profit by his criticisms and suggestions.
The introduction prefixed to the translation makes no pretence to originality, and is scarcely more than an abstract of the introductions in Mr. Mayor’s edition, with a few additions from Zeller and Ueberweg. Both in the introduction and notes, references to passages in the De Natura are made by means of books and chapters.
