9789004179035: Theophrastus On First Principles (known as his Metaphysics) (Philosophia Antiqua / Theophrastus of Eresus)

The short aporetic essay On First Principles by Theophrastus, thought to have been transmitted as his Metaphysics, is critically edited for the first time on the basis of all the available evidence--the Greek manuscripts and the medieval Arabic and Latin translations--together with an introduction, English translation, extensive commentary, and a diplomatic edition of the medieval Latin translation. This book equally contributes to Graeco-Arabic studies as ancilla of classical studies, and includes the first critical edition of the Arabic translation with an English translation and commentary, a detailed excursus on the editorial technique for Greek texts which medieval Arabic translations are extant as well as for the Arabic translations themselves, and a complete Greek and Arabic glossary as a blueprint for future lexica.

About the Author:

Dimitri Gutas, PhD (1975) in Arabic and Islamic Studies, Yale University, is Professor of Arabic at Yale. He has published on the medieval Graeco-Arabic translation movement and its lexicography, the transmission of Greek philosophical texts into Arabic, and Arabic philosophy.

Review:

Gutas has brought his thorough knowledge of this period and movement to bear on one short philosophical text that has already attracted the scrutiny of Greek and Arabic scholars alike, although hardly in the comparative detail and practical usefulness evident in this present work. By Adam McCollum, in: Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2011.11.31 "La richesse de l'edition en fait un ouvrage susceptible de s'adresser a un public plus large qu'il n'y parait, par dela les seuls specialistes d'Aristote et de Theophraste. Le glossaire grec-arabe, par exemple, se revelera utitle tant aux traducteurs des textes grecs qu'aux specialistes de philosophie arabe medievale. L'etudiant anglophone y lira une traduction accessible. Tout ceux enfin qu'interesse la metaphisique en general retrouveront un de ses hauts lieux d'elaboration." Gweltaz Guyomarc'h, in Revue philosophique de Louvain 1/2012"
