Aristotle, Generation of Animals 2.1, 735a4-22 speaks about semen and soul. The passage speaks about 'the soul' and 'the parts'. Against all current interpretations it is argued that Aristotle means 'the soul in its entirety' and 'the parts of the soul'. It is proposed that the Greek text edited by Drossaart Lulofs in 735a22 be corrected by accepting the reading of ms Z.
