On Aristotle's "Prior analytics 1.23-31" by Alexander ( Book )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 319 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

"The topics covered in this part of Simplicius' commentary on On the Heavens are the speeds and distances of the stars; that the stars are spherical; why the sun and moon have fewer motions that the other five planets; why the sphere of the fixed stars contains so many stars whereas the other heavenly spheres contain no more than one (Simplicius has a long excursus on planetary theory in his commentary on this chapter); discussion of people's views on the position, motion or rest, shape, and size of the earth; and that the earth is a relatively small sphere at rest in the center of the cosmos."--BOOK JACKET

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

Simplicius by J. O Urmson ( )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

Alexander of Aphrodisias by Alexander ( )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 49 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 tha
Alexander of Aphrodisias by Ian Mueller ( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The commentary of Alexander of Aphrodisias on Aristotle's Prior Analytics 1.8-22 is a very important text, being the main ancient commentary with chapters in which Aristotle invented modal logic - the logic of propositions about what is necessary or contingent (possible). The first volume of Ian Mueller's translation covered chapters 1.8-13, and reached as far as the chapter in which Aristotle discussed the notion of contingency. In this, the second volume, the 'greatest' commentator, Alexander, concludes his discussion of Aristotle's modal logic. Aristotle also invented the syllogism, a style
