Chapter Summary

A lemmata, as a rule, is an abstract of something, that is to say either of an original passage, or of a report. Most lemmata are comprised of abstracts of original statements drawn from the authority indicated by same label or from accounts of views of such authorities. A lemmata can also be an abstract of an original which, as to its phraseology, has been influenced by its report. Tenets tend to be transformed or even deformed. The name label "Philolaus, the Pythagorean" signifies that the present tenet is attributed to a particular school. There are other cases of Pythagorean doctrines, anonymous in Aristotle, which have been provided with name labels in A. There is only a single reference in Aristotle's works to Philolaus.

Keywords: abstact; Aristotle; deformed; label; lemmata; Philolaus; Pythagoreanism
