Avicenna / Ibn Sina AL -選BARA

AVICENNA'S COMMENTARY ON ARISTOTLE'S DE INTERPRETATIONE

ISBN: 978-3-88405-106-1

Price: €68.00 (including 19 % tax)


AVICENNA (Ibn Sīnā) was and remains the preeminent Islamic
philosopher. His works on science, metaphysics and medicine have
had great influence on Islamic culture as well as on the West. Less
known in the West are his logical works, as only his treatise on
Porphyry’s Isagoge was translated into Latin.
A translation of Avicenna’s “Commentary” on ARISTOTLE’S ON
INTERPRETATION, AL-‘IBĀRĀ, is given here: the first in a Western
language. Avicenna does not paraphrase the text but instead
comments upon what the correct doctrines are. He offers original
doctrines on such topics as predication, the logical square of
opposition, and future contingents.
Avicenna uses and refers to these doctrines in his scientific works.
This translation will contribute to a better understanding of Avicenna’s
overall philosophy.
