Chapter Summary

This chapter contains a list of unpublished sources, edited sources and literature for the book Homo animal nobilissimum. This study deals with the philosophical approaches of thirteenth-century thinkers to concrete manifestations of 'quantum ad naturalia' in human lives and to the practical outlines and peculiarities of humanity in their commentaries on Aristotle's works on natural philosophy, both his genuine works and those then considered genuine. It inquires into what they deemed worthy of philosophical debate regarding this topic and how they tackled it. The first of the two volumes describes the cultural surroundings, the scholars' way of approaching the topic, and their discourses on the peculiarity (singularity, unity, consistency) of humankind and on its internal differentiation according to gender, stage of life, social stratification, and differences due to ethnic status or geographic (climatic) diversity. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Aristotle's works; Homo animal nobilissimum; human lives; natural philosophy; philosophical debate; thirteenth-century thinkers; unpublished sources
