By Stefan Alexandru

During this annotated severe version of Aristotle’s Metaphysics Lambda Stefan Alexandru explores and makes use of for the 1st time a number of formerly overlooked textual assets, written in Greek, Latin, Arabic, and Hebrew. The 12th e-book of the Metaphysics, initially an autonomous treatise, is important for the knowledge of Aristotle’s philosophy, essentially as the doctrine of the Unmoved Mover is nowhere else set forth in better detail.
Not purely all of the forty-two previously recognized Greek codices were collated, but in addition commentaries and translations. furthermore, a hitherto undiscovered, self sufficient manuscript, representing a tenuous and especially necessary department of the direct culture, is minutely investigated. The record in query, preserved within the Vatican, is an autograph of the Byzantine humanist and Ecumenical Patriarch Gennadios II Scholarios.
