Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of author names and terms mentioned in the book Aristotle on Definition. The book argues that the method of dialectic in the Topics and the method of demonstrative syllogism in the Posterior Analytics are connected, in that the requirements for the establishment of definition set out in the Topics are intended to guarantee that definitions will be basic truths of the right sort for demonstration. To identify the features of immediate definitions that allow them to function as first principles is to begin to understand Aristotle’s solution to the problem of the certainty of definitions and their adequacy to serve as first principles.

Keywords: Aristotle; posterior analytics
