Sample text

The text is corrupt but clearly includes the per se modes (not so designated). There may be a hint of either subject I accidents or species I individuals diaeresis, possibly both or neither. There is no mention of Andronicus, the (later) Peripatos, Porphyry, or the secundum se I accidens dichotomy. sag. I 22,14ff. + II 154,llff.

II 458,27) may hint at some prior study of the Physics; In Perihenneneian II 190,13 implies a commentary on the same; and Consolatio V 1,12, although irrelevant for present purposes, at least conveys the impression of first-hand knowledge.

Aristotle at Met. 993b20f. makes the theoretical I pt·actical division and at I 026a 19 subdivides the theoretical into physics, mathematics, and theology.
