Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains a list of reference articles and books that are mentioned in the book Aristotle on Definition. The book begins by considering definitions as indemonstrable first principles in demonstrations, and inquires how such definitions can have the certainty required by that role. It looks to the Metaphysics to understand how the unity of definitions guarantees their certainty, and to the Topics to discover why definitions must be formulated in terms of the genus and differentia(e) of the object defined.

Keywords: Aristotle; Metaphysics
