Alexander Of Aphrodisias On Stoic Physics: A Study Of The De Mexitione With Preliminary Essays, With Preliminary Essays, Text, Translation And Commentary (Philosophia Antiqua)

The importance of Alexander of Aphrodisias in the Aristotelian
tradition in Western philosophy is well established. This reputation
however rests almost exclusively on his very influential interpretation
of Aristotle's doctrine of the active intellect. The subject
of the present study, the de mixtione, is a treatise in which he deals
with the philosophically less important topic of the mixture of
physical bodies. My aim is to show that both as an exposition of
Aristotelian thought and as an extended discussion of Stoic physics
it offers an excellent opportunity to observe the development of
Peripatetic scholasticism in the face of ideas developed in postAristotelian
philosophy. In this way I shall try to establish the
largely unacknowledged importance of Alexander's contribution to
the Greek philosophical tradition.
