Chapter Summary

This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the book. The work of Frans De Haas on the problem of raw material in the thought of Philoponus (1997) that extended by developing the incommensurate observations Christian Wildberg (1988) opened a huge field of research and pointed one of most formidable disputed questions of late antiquity whose peak was, in all likelihood, of relatively short duration. In light of recent studies in the physical field studies relating to philoponiennes theories on the matter, one can not omit henceforth the recent Golitsis thesis, published in 2008 by Walter de Gruyter under the title: The comments Simplicius and John Philoponus on Aristotle's Physics. The chapter gives a brief overview of how the other chapters in this book are organised. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Aristotle; Christian Wildberg; Frans De Haas; Golitsis thesis; Philoponus
