This introduction provides a description of the manuscripts of the De Anima; commentaries on the De Anima; and its links with other works such as Metaphysics, Physics, the biological treatises, and the ethical works. The agenda of the De Anima is discussed, and three general positions concerning the materiality of the psuchē are identified. Recent interpretations of the De Anima are then considered.
