Aristotle's Metaphysics Lambda: Annotated Critical Edition Based upon a Systematic Investigation of Greek, Latin, Arabic and Hebrew Sources (Philosophia Antiqua, Volume 135)

Stefan Alexandru


during this annotated serious version of Aristotle’s Metaphysics Lambda Stefan Alexandru explores and makes use of for the 1st time a variety of formerly overlooked textual assets, written in Greek, Latin, Arabic, and Hebrew. The 12th booklet of the Metaphysics, initially an self sufficient treatise, is essential for the knowledge of Aristotle’s philosophy, basically as the doctrine of the Unmoved Mover is nowhere else set forth in larger detail.
Not merely all of the forty-two previously identified Greek codices were collated, but in addition commentaries and translations. additionally, a hitherto undiscovered, self sufficient manuscript, representing a tenuous and especially invaluable department of the direct culture, is minutely investigated. The rfile in query, preserved within the Vatican, is an autograph of the Byzantine humanist and Ecumenical Patriarch Gennadios II Scholarios.
