Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book 'Anonymus Aurelianensis III' in Aristotelis Analytica priora: Critical Edition, Introduction, Notes, and Indexes contains the table of contents and preface. The 'Anonymus Aurelianensis III' represents a stage in the Western reception of Aristotle's syllogistic. The fate of the Analytica priora in the Medieval West between Boethius' Latin translation in the early 6th century and the resurfacing of the text in Abelard's Dialectica in the early 12th century is still unknown. Aristotelian theory of the categorical syllogism was indirectly and fragmentarily known through such Latin opuscula as Boethius' De syllogismo categorico and Apuleius'Peri hermeneias, but there is no indication that the text of the Analytica priora was accessible to the Westerners until Abelard.

Keywords: Abelard's Dialectica; Anonymus Aurelianensis III; Aristotelis Analytica priora
