Summary and Info
This study intends to show that the ascription of many shortcomings or obscurities to Aristotle is due to the persistent misinterpretation of key notions in his works, including anachronistic perceptions of statement making. In the first volume, published separately (ISBN: 90-04-12324-5), Aristotle's semantics is culled from the Organon. This second volume presents Aristotle's ontology of the sublunar world, and pays special attention to his strategy of argument in light of his semantic views. This book is aimed at all those interested in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy, the history of logic and semantics, and the development of metaphysics, as well as classical philologists and theologians.
