Simplicius On Aristotle on the Heavens 1.2-3 by Ian Mueller

Simplicius On Aristotle on the Heavens 1.2-3

Part of the Ancient Commentators on Aristotle Series


Simplicius On Aristotle on the Heavens 1.2-3 by Ian Mueller

This is the first complete translation into a modern language of the first part of the pagan Neoplatonist Simplicius of Cilicia's commentary on Aristotle's argument that the world neither came to be nor will perish. It is notable and unusual among the commentaries because Simplicius includes in his discussion lengthy representations of the Christian John Philoponus' criticisms of Aristotle along with his own, frequently heavily sarcastic, responses.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
