Brill's Companions to Classical Reception; Volume 7


Scholars of philosophy examine the sparse mentions of Aristotle during the Hellenistic period, and the voluminous references to him in the post-Hellenistic period beginning in the first century BC and continuing into late antiquity. Among the topics are Aristotle and the Hellenistic peripatos from Theophrastus to Critolaus, Aristolianism in the second century AD before Alexander of Aphrodisias, the ancient biographical tradition on Aristotle, Ammonius and the Alexandrian school, Simplicius and Philoponus on the authority of Aristotle, and early Christian philosophers on Aristotle.
