Axis History of philosophy from Ancient to Modern Age

The Aristotle Metaphysics of Alexander of Aphrodisias 2012–2013

Organisers : Annick Jaulin (SPHERE–CHSPAM/Gramata, Univ. Paris I). Sessions : University Paris I.

Alexander of Aphrodisias is the only Greek commentator of Aristotle’s Metaphysics which is not connected with the neo-Platonic school. On the contrary, he has played a great part in the Plotinian understanding of Aristotelianism. That is to say, it played a fundamental role in the history of the transmission of metaphysics in the Greek, Arab and Latin worlds, but this role remains little studied.
This seminar, co-organized by a subgroup (CNRS - University Paris1) of the UMR 7219 and the University of Aix, aims to translate and analyze the authentic part (A-D books) of Metaphysics transmitted in Greek under the name of Alexander, in order to understand the reading which he proposed of Aristotle by situating it in the history of Greek philosophy (stoician context and influence on Neoplatonic reception of Aristotle ​​and to determine the influence of his "Aristotelianism" on the later Aristotelian tradition, Arab and Latin.
