According to legend, while the infant Plato was sleeping in a bower of myrtles on Mount Hymettus, bees settled upon his lips, auguring the honeyed words that would one day flow through his mouth.
This may come as a surprise to modern readers of Aristotle, whose treatises often seem heavily technical, poorly written, and badly organised — and yet aristotepicum is difficult to doubt the judgement of a man like Cicero. One can only assume that Cicero had before him works that have since been lost, such as the dialogues that Aristotle is known to have written earlier on in his career, probably while still at the Academy.
They were probably lecture notes or clrpus texts, and were almost certainly repeatedly reworked over a period of several years. Although their aristotelicym is unembellished, this does not usually detract from their philosophical content, and some scholars even come to admire them for their candour and for their clarity.
According to Strabo and to Plutarch, Aristotle willed his esoteric writings to Theophrastus, who in turn willed them to his student Neleus of Scepsis, who supposedly took them from Athens to Scepsis. According to the story, Apellicon repatriated the dilapidated manuscripts to Athens, wherefrom Sulla, who occupied Athens in 86 BC, removed them to Rome.
They were then published by the grammarian Tyrannion of Amisus and, aristoteelicum, by the peripatetic philosopher Andronicus of Rhodes.
The works in the Corpus Aristotelicum can be classified into one of several groups according to their subject matter.
Practical sciences are concerned with good conduct and action both at the individual level, as in ethics, and at the societal level, as in politics. Productive sciences are concerned with the creation of beautiful or useful artefacts, and include, amongst many others, agriculture, medicine, music, and rhetoric.
Not all the works in the Corpus Aristotelicum are considered to be genuine, and the list that follows is composed only of those that are.
The works are referred to by their English titles, but their Latin titles and standard abbreviations, which are often used by scholars, are also given.

Bekker numbers are included in all modern editions or translations of Aristotle that are intended for scholarly readers, and enable citations to be cross-checked in any edition or translation that contain the numbers. The equivalent numbering system for the Corpus Platonicum is the Stephanus pagination. Organon Categories [Categorie, Cat. You are commenting using your WordPress.
