UPDATE 3/7: At the moment, Amazon is accepting pre-orders again. These things tend to fluctuate, so check back periodically if the pre-order option temporarily disappears again. As noted below, you can also pre-order through the U.S. distributor. European readers can also order through Eurospan.
UPDATE 3/5: Looks like Amazon's pre-order stock sold out right away. If you don't want to wait for Amazon to re-stock, it looks like you can also pre-order via the U.S. distributor.
Amazon has the U.S. release of my new book Aristotle’s Revenge: The Metaphysical Foundations of Physical and Biological Science scheduled for March 22. You can pre-order now. The book has already been available for a few weeks at Amazon.co.uk and other European outlets.
“With characteristic clarity and panache, Feser argues that the principles of Aristotelian and Thomistic philosophy, especially metaphysics and the philosophy of nature, are not challenged by developments in modern and contemporary science. Indeed, Feser thinks that a proper understanding of the natural sciences discloses the enduring value of these very principles. The book offers an excellent analysis of many of the key philosophical questions that lie at the heart of discourse about the implications of the physical and biological sciences. It is a very important resource for philosophers and scientists.” Dr. William E. Carroll, Aquinas Institute, Blackfriars, University of Oxford
