Le récit ancien sur l’assemblage de la Métaphysique d’Aristote: sa réception, ses implications, ses origines digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM - 2018 - 1
Anno: 2018
This paper deals with the most ancient tale about the way and the time Aristotle’s Metaphysics was composed. This is found at the beginning of Asclepius’ commentary in Metaphysicam (4.4-16 Hayduck). If we consider the general context which the tale seems to presuppose, its interest is twofold: it witnesses for a time when the Metaphysics could still be regarded as an unfinished work...

The First Account on Aristotle’s Metaphysic in Fourteen Books: Alexander of Aphrodisias’ ‘Fragment Zero’ digital
formato: Articolo | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA - 2016 - 4
Anno: 2016
The purpose of this article is to point out historical relevancy of the further textual findings made together by Fazzo and Zonta in 2014, namely the confirmation that a large section of Averroes’ introduction to his Great Commentary on Metaphysics Lambda comes from the Syriac-to-Arabic translation of a corresponding text by Alexander of Aphrodisias. Even if the content of Alexander’s introduction has been adjusted by Averroes for the sake of his own commentary, traces of the Greek-to-Syriac translation can still be found in the letters-titles attributed to the Metaphysics books 7 to 11...

Lo stemma codicum dei libri Kappa e Lambda della Metafisica: una revisione necessaria digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM - 2010 - 2
Anno: 2010
This article is devoted to the textual transmission of Aristotle’s Metaphysics books Kappa and Lambda, with special reference to manuscript Ab (Florence, Laur. 87.12), which often disagrees with the most ancient manuscripts of the Metaphysics (E and J). It has played a prominent part in the XIXth and XXth century editions and has been regarded as evidence for an independent tradition, possibly going back to antiquity, to Aristotle’s times, or to a papyrus exemplar. But it appears that this cannot be true for the last books of the Metaphysics: in 1979 Harlfinger showed that for the final part of book Lambda (1073a to the end) and for the whole of books My and Ny, Ab belongs to the same a family as E and J, and therefore it is not a witness to a b family. In Harlfinger’s footsteps, the present article goes further and argues that this is the case for the final part of book Kappa (1065a to the end) and for the whole of book Lambda.

Diogene di Apollonia e le Nuvole di Aristofane: nota intorno alle origini di un problema storiografico digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2009 - 9
Anno: 2009
The article belongs to a broader project of a wide ranging reconsideration of the Pre-Socratic philosopher Diogenes of Apollonia. We challenge here Diels' view according to which Diogenes acts in the frame of Aristophanes' Clouds as a kind of a ghost thinker, hidden in the shadow of "Socrates"' character. Such a view, which is usually accepted, comes out to misrepresent Diogenes as a thinker, putting him in the worse possible light in the eyes of scholars in history of philosophy. For our sake, we focus on the water-crescent passage, probably the best supposed argument in favour of Diels' claim. We thus contrast "Socrates" ' alleged lächerliche Theorie, as Diels calls it, with Diogenes' fragments (collected by Laks 1983, 2008). In the whole, we find much more differences than similarities. This is hardly a surprising. In spite of his prominent role in Aristotle's corpus, Diogenes is never mentioned in Athens' fifth century literature, and it is even not sure that he could have been a significant target there. We thus confirm Kahn's 1997 assessment: "the influence of Diogenes on Athenian thought of the fifth century seems to be a figment of modern scholarship without basis in the text".

L’esordio del libro Lambda della Metafisica digital
formato: Articolo | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA - 2008 - 2-3
Anno: 2008
The particular subject of this article is the very first sentence of Aristotle’s Metaphysics book Lambda: what does it really mean? I would stick to the most generous sense: (Aristotelian) qewriva is about substance. Indeed, it has been often held that Lambda ignores the so-called focal meaning, and shows a remarkably rough stage of Aristotle’s conception of prime philosophy. By contrast, in this light, the very incipit of Lambda appears to testify Aristotle’s concern in an ontological foundation of theoretical wisdom as such, which Lambda shares with the Metaphysics “central books”, Zeta in particular, in a not less coherent and possibly more advanced form.
