Sample text

Peri de geneseoˆs kai phthoras, 314a1), raises two problems, a general one and a specific one. 1 Secondly, Aristotelian treatises, as a rule, begin without any connective particle;2 what are we to make of the unusual äÝ ? These two features should of course remind us, first of all, that the neat division of our Corpus Aristotelicum into separate and well-delimited treatises does not necessarily come from Aristotle’s own hand. To begin with the problem of the title, the most interesting parallel, I think, is provided in the Sophistical Refutations.

34 The star example is of course the beginning of Ph. I. 2. The difference is that Ph. distinguishes two versions of monism, the immobilist (Eleatic) one and the mobilist (Milesian) one (184b15–18), whereas GC, which does not take Eleaticism into account (see n. 33 above), only refers to monistic doctrines of the Milesian type (cf. 314a9, ðÜíôÆ Kî ›íeò ªåííHóØ; 314b1–2, ôïEò . . Kî ›íeò ðÜíôÆ ŒÆôÆóŒåıÜæïıóØí). 35 Cf. also 314b1–6, where IíƪŒÆEïí (b2), applied to the monistic implication, is to be understood with the infinitive äØƐÝæåØí (b5), this time applied to the pluralistic implication.

314a6–7, might indicate that the readers or hearers of I, 2 are supposed to have already read or heard I. 1. As a matter of fact, some acquaintance with Physics would be enough to familiarize them with this notion. GC I. 1: A False Start? 37 (iv) Migliori also remarks that ‘quando in chiusura si riassumono i risultati di questi primi capitoli, lo schema che si ripresenta e` chiaramente quello dell’inizio del secondo capitolo’. This again is perfectly true. The final summary referred to by Migliori is the end of I.
