Chapter Summary

In this section we look at the various authorial remarks and announcements that our author places throughout the five books in more detail. The distinctions between the treatment of the main parts of the cosmos and of the particular issues and between celestial and atmospheric phenomena belong with the macrostructure. Yet in A at P 1.8.1 this chapter is announced with an authorial remark: 'Lying next to the account of the gods the account of daemons and heroes should be told'. Another authorial comment pertaining to structure is at the beginning of the first lemma of ch. 4.3, heading (P only) 'Whether the soul is a body and what is its substance'. Looking back at the previous chapter, A at P 4.3.1 says 'all those previously listed in order submit that the soul is incorporeal' and lists some of the attributes of soul from the lemmata of the previous chapter.
