Abstract

This session will deal with the rediscovery of Aristotle in the Latin West in the 13th-14th centuries and transmission of the Corpus Aristotelicum from Greek and Arabic into Latin. Commentaries and pseudo-Aristotelian works will be also studied. The assimilation of Aristotle in the Latin encyclopaedias will be taken into consideration as well. Priority will be given to the reception of the libri naturales.
