Philoponus , On Aristotle Posterior analytics 2 by John Philoponus( Book )

51 editions published between 1897 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 213 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

On Aristotle's "Topics 1" by Alexander( Book )

24 editions published between 1881 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristotle's Topics is about dialectic, which can be understood as a debate between two people or as an individual's internal debate. Its purposes range from philosophical training to discovering the first principles of thought. Its arguments concern the four predicables: definition, property, genus, and accident. Aristotle explains how these four fit into his ten categories and in Book 1 begins to outline strategies for debate, such as the definition of ambiguity." "Alexander's commentary on Book 1 concerns the definition of Aristotelian syllogistic argument; its resistance to the rival Stoic theory of inference; and the character of inductive inference and of rhetorical argument. Alexander distinguishes inseparable accidents, such as the whiteness of snow, from defining differentiae, such as its being frozen, and considers how these differences fit into the schemes of categories. He speaks of dialectic as a stochastic discipline in which success is to be judged not by victory but by skill in argument. Alexander also investigates the subject of ambiguity, which had been richly developed since Aristotle by the rival Stoic school."--Jacket
