From Inquiry To Demonstrative Knowledge: New Essays on Aristotle's Posterior Analytics

J.H. Lesher (edit.)

Aristotle’s Posterior Analytics is regarded as ‘'one of the most brilliant, original, and influential works in the history of philosophy', a work that 'determined the course of philosophy of science- and to some extent of science itself- for two millennia' (Jonathan Barnes, Aristotle's Posterior Analytics [Oxford 1975], xiii). Nevertheless the work poses may challenges to the scholar. These original essays by distinguished scholars seeks to resolve many of these challenges.

The anthology makes a worthwhile contribution to the debate regarding whether and, if so, to what extent Aristotle’s views on demonstration and scientific knowledge guided his philosophical and scientific work. This volume successfully shows that in fact they do." (The Classical Review)
