Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses somatic peculiarities of humanity in philosophical approaches of masters' commentaries on Aristotle's work of natural philosophy in detail. It first describes the observations of the master on specific human body constitution which is structured according to the special features. The effect of human body is concerned with specific organs as well as typical bodily processes and body movements. The chapter then discusses which structure is philosophically concerned with the human-specific somatic characteristics. The function and importance of human body had been already worked by Aristotle himself. A large part of the evidence on human specific physical processes and body movements by master were already elsewhere. The philosophical investigation on the specific characteristics of the human body by masters broke the fundamental problems as compared to that of the animal. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Aristotle; bodily processes; human body constitution; human body movements; natural philosophy; philosophical approach
