Chapter Summary

S preserves material from this chapter, but he does not include it in his cosmological chapters. Instead he places it in that part of his work dealing with principles and fundamental physical concepts based on A's Book I. The chapter thus moves from the dominant view to the most radical view. Finally, there are cross-links with the chapter on shape in Book I. If the above analysis is on the right track, then the chapter is structured by means of no less than four diaereses. The major one is between unicists and infinitists, as introduced in the previous chapter. From the impressive number of parallels it is clear that the problem treated in the chapter was regarded as a standard example of a philosophical question in the rhetorical schools.

Keywords: Aetius Placita; diaereses; dominant view; infinitists; philosophical question; physical concepts; radical view; shape; unicists
