Chapter Summary

Since the 19th century scholars have questioned the authorship of Aristotle and expressed a variety of opinions concerning the work's origin. In the famous Aristoteles Pseudepigraphus, in which he brings together all the fragments of the works attributed by the ancients to Aristotle but which were not part of the corpus of the manuscript tradition edited by Bekker, Valentini Rose claimed the Divisiones, together with the other fragments, to be spurious, concocted by Peripatetics who came after Aristotle. O. Gigon argued that the Divisiones should be attributed to Aristotle, and in his edition of the fragments of the lost works included the version of Diogenes Laertius and the text of the Marcianus Graecus in their entirety, placing them in the section devoted to Aristotle's dialogues which features works commonly held to be juvenilia.

Keywords: Aristoteles Pseudepigraphus; Diogenes Laertius; Marcianus Graecus; O. Gigon; Valentini Rose
