Chapter Summary

This appendix section presents parallel or relevant passages (not comprehensive) from works of other commentators of Aristotle and David himself for this book David the Invincible Commentary on Aristotle's Prior Analytics. The book discusses Aristotle's definition of syllogism: disagreeing with Alexander of Aphrodisias (2nd-3rd centuries) who, according to David, wrote that Aristotle defined only the categorical syllogism, and not the hypothetical too, and with the Ephectics who doubted the very existence of syllogism, the commentator attempts to explain the definition of syllogism phrase by phrase and word by word.

Keywords: Aristotle; David; Ephectics; syllogism
