Chapter Summary

In this chapter, primary focus will be on the topic of the correctness of names and the manner in which it is treated in what is roughly the first part of the commentary. And indeed, it can be found later on in this chapter that the points that Proclus believes Socrates to score against Hermogenes are translated into refutations of remarks by Aristotle on the nature of names in De Interpretatione.In his commentary on the former dialogue,Proclus explains that the first section of that dialogue aims at not paying too much attention to human affaires, but instead focussing on the divine and on virtue.From this chapter and the previous one it emerges that Proclus holds a very subtle view on the issue of the correctness of names.
