Averroes’s Cosmology: The Middle Commentary on the De Caelo of Aristotle 2013–2014


Organizer : Ahmad Hasnaoui (CNRS). Seminar of the UMR 7219, CNRS-Paris 7 Diderot University with EPHE and Paris I University.



PRESENTATION


In his commentaries on Aristotle’s De caelo, Averroes aimed to rethink the foundations of Aristotelian cosmology. The aim of the seminar is:
1) first to bring to light the principles which underlie Averroes’ project and to situate this project in the large scale history of the cosmological doctrines which take their starting point in Aristotle’s De caelo ;
2) second to describe Averroes exegetical methods, varying with the format taken on by his commentaries. A special attention will be paid to his ‘formalist’ style and to his efforts to show that Aristotle’s exposition conforms maximally to the demonstrative model of the Posterior Analytics. We intend to produce a French annotated translation of Averroes’ Middle Commentary on the De Caelo with a view to reconstructing a key moment in the history of medieval cosmological doctrines. This work will be carried out by combining the skills of science and philosophy historians, as well as Arabic, Hebraic and Latin philologists, this commentary being available in Hebrew and Latin. Building on the work already completed on the first book, we will study this year the commentary on the De caelo’s second book.
