By Stefan Alexandru

During this annotated severe variation of Aristotle’s Metaphysics Lambda Stefan Alexandru explores and makes use of for the 1st time a number of formerly ignored textual assets, written in Greek, Latin, Arabic, and Hebrew. The 12th booklet of the Metaphysics, initially an self reliant treatise, is important for the knowledge of Aristotle’s philosophy, essentially as the doctrine of the Unmoved Mover is nowhere else set forth in larger detail.
Not in simple terms all of the forty-two previously identified Greek codices were collated, but in addition commentaries and translations. additionally, a hitherto undiscovered, self sustaining manuscript, representing a tenuous and especially beneficial department of the direct culture, is minutely investigated. The rfile in query, preserved within the Vatican, is an autograph of the Byzantine humanist and Ecumenical Patriarch Gennadios II Scholarios.
