Aristotle's Metaphysics Lambda: Annotated Critical Edition by Stefan Alexandru

By Stefan Alexandru

During this annotated severe variation of Aristotle’s Metaphysics Lambda Stefan Alexandru explores and makes use of for the 1st time a number of formerly ignored textual resources, written in Greek, Latin, Arabic, and Hebrew. The 12th booklet of the Metaphysics, initially an autonomous 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 purely the entire forty-two previously identified Greek codices were collated, but in addition commentaries and translations. furthermore, a hitherto undiscovered, self sustaining manuscript, representing a tenuous and especially beneficial 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.
