Chapter Summary

In the introduction to his Doxographi graeci Diels argued that ps.-Plutarchs On the Physical Tenets Accepted by the Philosophers, Five Books usually latinized as Placita philosophorum rather than as Placita physicaand substantial excerpts concerned with natural philosophy to be found in Stobaeus Eclogae physicae and Theodorets Treatment of Greek Diseases derive from a common source. In the first two books of the De caelo Aristotle discusses a number of questions pertaining to the cosmos and the heavenly bodies. He deals with the element of the heavenly bodies, their shape, and their movement in general but does not, as Atius in Book II of the Placita, devote special sections to the stars, the sun, and the moon.
