Aristotle’s Physics offers important insights into a wide range of perennial issues in the history of science. The second book of the Physics investigates the principles of nature, and it is here that Aristotle addresses the relationship between necessity and chance. What Aristotle has to say on this subject continues to be important, and my paper is an examination of his analysis.
