"Aristotle believed that the outermost stars are carried around the earth on a transparent sphere, that there are directions in the universe and a preferred direction of rotation. The sun, moon, and planets are carried on different revolving spheres. The spheres and celestial bodies are composed of an everlasting fifth element, which has none of the ordinary contrary properties like heat and cold, which could destroy it, but only the facility for uniform rotation. But this belief raises the question of how the heavenly bodies create light and, in the case of the sun, heat."
Alexander of Aphrodisias on Aristotle prior analytics 1.23-31 by Alexander( Book )
15 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The other main topic of this part of the Prior Analytics is the specification of a method for discovering true premises needed to prove a given proposition. Aristotle's presentation is sometimes difficult to follow, and Alexander's discussion is extremely helpful to the uninitiated reader. In his commentary on the final chapter translated in this volume, Alexander provides an insightful account of Aristotle's criticism of Plato's method of division."--BOOK JACKET
On Aristotle Prior analytics 1.32-46 by Alexander( )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The last 14 chapters of book 1 of Aristotle's 'Prior Analytics' are concerned with the representation in the formal language of syllogistic of propositions and arguments expressed in more or less everyday Greek. In his commentary on those chapters, 'Alexander of Aphrodisias' explains some of Aristotle's more opaque assertions and discusses post-Aristotelian ideas in semantics and the philosophy of language. In doing so he provides an unusual insight into the way in which these disciplines developed in the Hellenistic era. He also shows a more sophisticated understanding of these fields than Aristotle himself, while remaining a staunch defender of Aristotle's emphasis on meaning as opposed to Stoics concern with verbal formulation. In his commentary on the final chapter of book 1 Alexander offers a thorough discussion of Aristotle's distinction between denying that something is, e.g., white and asserting that it is non-white."--Bloomsbury Publishing

On Aristotle on the heavens 1.2-3 by Simplicius( )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first complete translation into a modern language of the first part of the pagan Neoplatonist Simplicius of Cilicia's commentary on Aristotle's argument that the world neither came to be nor will perish. It is notable and unusual among the commentaries because Simplicius includes in his discussion lengthy representations of the Christian John Philoponus' criticisms of Aristotle along with his own, frequently heavily sarcastic, responses

The subject of Aristotle's On the Heavens, Books 3-4, is the four elements of earth, air, fire and water, which exist below the heavens. Book 3, in chapters 1 to 7, frequently criticizes the Presocratic philosophers. Because of this, Simplicius' commentary is one of our main sources of quotations of the Presocratics. Ian Mueller's translation of this commentary gains added importance by enabling us to see the context which guided Simplicius' selection of Presocratic texts to quote. Simplicius also criticizes the lost commentary of the leading Aristotelian commentator, Alexander, and thereby g
