This is the first critical edition of the earliest known Latin commentary on Aristotle’s Prior Analytics, the Anonymus Aurelianensis III. In addition to the critical text, Christina Thomsen Thörnqvist’s edition contains a comparative analysis of the anonymous commentary and the extant Greek commentaries as well as a full comparison between Boethius’ translation and the translation used by the commentator. The edition provides a solid foundation for further study on the earliest medieval exegesis on the Prior Analytics and is an essential resource for any scholar who wants to learn more about the development of logic in general and the medieval reception of Aristotelian syllogistic in particular.

The Journal of the Philosophy of History (JPH) is devoted to philosophical examinations of history and of historiography. We are interested in conceptual studies of what history and historiography are and of what their philosophy is and ought to be.

The journal covers a wide range of questions: epistemological questions regarding whether, and what kind of, knowledge of the past is possible; ontological questions regarding history and history-writing; phenomenological questions regarding historical experience; semantic questions regarding the referentiality and meaning of both historiographical texts as wholes and their constitutive statements; philosophy of science-related questions regarding the nature of historiographical explanation and understanding as well as the scientific status of historiography generally; and axiological questions regarding the ethical and aesthetical value of history-writing.

The philosophy of history has a rich history. We welcome submissions that engage with that history, so long as they contribute to the philosophical understanding of history or of historiography. We also welcome manuscripts that deal with philosophical questions and problems regarding the historiography of science. Finally, we have a strong interest in forging closer relations between philosophy and history: How can history help to solve philosophical problems? How can philosophy illuminate problems in the researching and writing of history? The Journal of the Philosophy of History is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal. We welcome contributions from all branches of philosophy, including epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, philosophy of the historiography of science, aesthetics, and value theory, so long as they engage fruitfully with history and historiography. We also welcome historiographical contributions, so long as they engage fruitfully with issues in the philosophy of history and of historiography.

Author: Bruce McNair
In Cristoforo Landino: His Works and Thought Bruce McNair examines the writings, lectures and orations of Landino (1424-98), Renaissance Florence’s famous teacher of poetry and rhetoric. McNair studies Landino’s lecture notes, public orations, poetry, philosophical works and most popular commentaries to show how Landino’s allegorical interpretations of Virgil and Dante grew in complexity as he studied philosophy and theology and how he understood Dante’s Commedia as completing and surpassing Virgil’s Aeneid. McNair also shows how Landino draws upon a wide range of thinkers such as Aristotle, Plato, Aquinas, Ficino, Argyropoulos and Bessarion, and how he incorporates his increasing knowledge of Plato into a scholastic framework and is better considered as a Dantean than a Neoplatonist.
A Critical Hebrew-Arabic Edition of the Surviving Textual Evidence, with an Introduction, Preliminary Studies, and a Commentary
Author: Yoav Meyrav
Themistius’ (4th century CE) paraphrase of Aristotle’s Metaphysics 12 is the earliest surviving complete account of this seminal work. Despite leaving no identifiable mark in Late Antiquity, Themistius’ paraphrase played a dramatic role in shaping the metaphysical landscape of Medieval Arabic and Hebrew philosophy and theology. Lost in Greek, and only partially surviving in Arabic, its earliest full version is in the form of a 13th century Hebrew translation. In this volume, Yoav Meyrav offers a new critical edition of the Hebrew translation and the Arabic fragments of Themistius’ paraphrase, accompanied by detailed philological and philosophical analyses. In doing so, he provides a solid foundation for the study of one of the most important texts in the history of Aristotelian metaphysics.
