Chapter Summary

Syrianus, son of Philoxenus, was the director of the Platonic School of Athens. With the reference in Posterior Analytics, Syrianus is suitable for the approach it adopts Platonic philosopher to explain each of the different books of the Metaphysics. The chapter shows this approach, although in the framework of a unitary philosophical project varies from book to book. In his exegesis of Book IV of the Metaphysics, Syrianus shows that it fully shares the doctrine of Aristotle about the principle of contradiction, and in respect of its defense against possible challenges. The chapter considers all explicit references to Posterior Analytics in the comment Syrianus; it focuses mainly on the controversial use of this material from Syrianus in the exegesis of Aristotle. The original text of the chapter is in French.
