Chapter Summary

This chapter makes some comments on a methodological principle which John Philoponus refers several times in the eleventh chapter of Contra Proclum. It discusses how Philoponus negotiates the question of the correctness of philosophical discourse and its agreement with which is precisely the subject 'speech'. It is found in Plato and Aristotle, although a comparative study of texts lead to admit that if they agree on the principle of a necessary agreement of words and things, they seem quite radically depart on question of the object which ultimately discourse must relate and conform. In an effort to reconcile Aristotle and Plato, the late-ancient philosophy whose thought of Proclus is one of the most completely, treat the noetic objects and sensitive objects with almost equal deference since everything is all intelligible in sensitive and sensitive to the intelligible. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Aristotle; Contra Proclum; John Philoponus; late-ancient philosophy; philosophical discourse; Plato
