Philoponus on Aristotle's On coming-to-be and perishing 1.1-5 by John Philoponus ( Book )
17 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first five chapters of Aristotle's De Generatione et Corruptione distinguish creation and destruction from mere qualitative change and from growth. But what inspires Philoponus most in his commentary on these chapters is the topic of organic growth. How does it take place without ingested matter getting into the same place as the growing body? And how is personal identity preserved, if our matter is always in flux, and our form depends on our matter? If we do not depend on the persistence of matter why are we not immortal? Analogous problems of identity arise also for inanimate beings. These topics of identity over time and the principles of causation are still matters of intense philosophical discussion
On Aristotle's "On the soul 1.1-2" by John Philoponus ( Book )
12 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This text by Philoponus, the sixth-century commentator on Aristotle, is notable for its very informative Introduction to Psychology, which tells us the views of Philoponus, of his teacher and of later Neoplatonists on our psychological capacities and on mind-body relations. There is an unusual account of how reason can infer a universally valid conclusion from a single instance, and there are inherited views on the roles of intellect and perception in concept formation, and on the human ability to make reasoned decisions, celebrated by Aristotle, but here downgraded. Philoponus attacks Galen's view that psychological capacities follow, or result from, bodily chemistry; they merely supervene on that and can be counteracted. He has benefited from Galen's knowledge of the brain and nerves, but also propounds the Neoplatonist belief in tenuous bodies which after death support our irrational souls temporarily, or our reason eternally."--Publisher's website

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Aristotle's "On coming to be and perishing 2.5-11" by John Philoponus ( Book )
11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It will be of interest to students of ancient philosophy and science (the commentary draws on earlier philosophical and medical texts); of Patristics and Christian theology (it allows comparison of Philoponus' later creationist doctrine with his earlier ideas about generation); of medieval philosophy (there are a number of parallels with Averroes' commentaries on Aristotle's treatise); and to anyone interested in metaphysics of causation, emergence, necessity, and determination."--BOOK JACKET

13 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In chapter 5, Philoponus endorses Aristotle's rejection of the idea that the soul is particles and of Empedocles's idea that the soul must be made of all four elements in order to know what is made of the same elements."--BOOK JACKET

Against Proclus's "On the eternity of the world, 12-18" by John Philoponus ( Book )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Finally, throughout these seven chapters Philoponus is engaged in a detailed exegesis of Plato's Timaeus that aims to settle a number of familiar interpretive problems, notably how we should properly understand the pre-cosmic state of disorderly motion, and the statement that the visible cosmos is an image of the paradigm. Philoponus's exegetical concerns culminate in chapter 18 with an extensive discussion of Plato's attitude to poetry and myth."--BOOK JACKET
On Aristotle Posterior analytics 1.1-8 by John Philoponus ( Book )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Aristotle's Posterior Analytics elaborates for the first time in the history of Western philosophy the notions of science and the requirements for the distinctive kind of knowledge scientists posses. His model is mathematics and his treatment of science amounts to a philosophical discussion, from the perspective or Aristotelian syllogistic, of mathematical proofs and the principles they are based on. Chapters 1-8 expound the foundations of Aristotle's theory, pointing out the similarities and differences between scientific knowledge and other types of knowledge, establishing the need for basic principles, and identifying the types of principles and the source of necessity associated with scientific facts." "Philoponus' massive commentary, the most complete ancient discussion of Posterior Analytics book, offers uniquely valuable testimony to the way this book was read and understood in late antiquity, as well as providing information on earlier interpretations. Of particular interest is Philoponus' account of scientific principles, which is based not only on Aristotle but also on the Greek mathematical tradition, especially Euclid and his commentator Proclus."--Jacket
On Aristotle's "On the soul 2.7-12" by John Philoponus ( Book )
13 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Philoponus shows knowledge of the sensory nerves and he believes that thought and anger both warm us. This insight is used elsewhere to show how we can tell someone else's state of mind."--BOOK JACKET
Philoponus on Aristotle physics 1.4-9 by John Philoponus ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Philoponus : on Aristotle Posterior analytics 2 by John Philoponus ( )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The 'Posterior Analytics' contains Aristotle's Philosophy of Science. In Book 2, Aristotle asks how the scientist discovers what sort of loss of light constitutes lunar eclipse. The scientist has to discover that the moon's darkening is due to the earth's shadow. Once that defining explanation is known the scientist possesses the full scientific concept of lunar eclipse and can use it to explain other necessary features of the phenomenon. The present commentary, arguably misascribed to Philoponus, offers some interpretations of Aristotle that are unfamiliar nowadays. For example, the scientific concept of a human is acquired from observing particular humans and repeatedly receiving impressions in the sense image or percept and later in the imagination. The impressions received are not only of particular distinctive characteristics, like paleness, but also of universal human characteristics, like rationality. Perception can thus in a sense apprehend universal qualities in the individual as well as particular ones."--Jacket
