Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Interpreting Aristotle's Posterior analytics in late antiquity and beyond contains a preface and an introduction. The treatment of the Posterior Analytics became an instrument in a development characteristic for the transition from natural philosophy to science, namely a progression of the awareness and sophistication of method and logical argument. The book brings together a collection of essays that trace the developments in the discussions of scientific method and argument in the comment (arie)s on Aristotle's Posterior Analytics and related methodological passages in the Aristotelian corpus. Despite the importance of these discussions the larger part of the commentary tradition on the Posterior Analytics still remains uncharted.

Keywords: Aristotle; late antiquity; posterior analytics
