On Aristotle's "On sense perception" by Alexander ( Book )
13 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In his work On Sense Perception, Aristotle discusses the material conditions of perception, starting with the sense organs and moving to the material basis of color, flavor, and odor. His Pythagorean account of hues as a ratio of dark to light was enthusiastically endorsed by Goethe against Newton as being true to the painter's experience. Aristotle finishes with three problems about continuity. In what sense are indefinitely small color patches or color variations perceptible? Which perceptibles leap discontinuously like light to fill a whole space, which have to reach one point before another; and do observers of the latter perceive the same thing if they are at different distances? How does the central sense permit genuinely simultaneous, rather than staggered, perception of different objects?"--Jacket
On Aristotle's "Topics 1" by Alexander ( Book )
12 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Aristotle's Topics is about dialectic, which can be understood as a debate between two people or as an individual's internal debate. Its purposes range from philosophical training to discovering the first principles of thought. Its arguments concern the four predicables: definition, property, genus, and accident. Aristotle explains how these four fit into his ten categories and in Book 1 begins to outline strategies for debate, such as the definition of ambiguity." "Alexander's commentary on Book 1 concerns the definition of Aristotelian syllogistic argument; its resistance to the rival Stoic theory of inference; and the character of inductive inference and of rhetorical argument. Alexander distinguishes inseparable accidents, such as the whiteness of snow, from defining differentiae, such as its being frozen, and considers how these differences fit into the schemes of categories. He speaks of dialectic as a stochastic discipline in which success is to be judged not by victory but by skill in argument. Alexander also investigates the subject of ambiguity, which had been richly developed since Aristotle by the rival Stoic school."--Jacket

On Aristotle's Meteorology 4 by Alexander ( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Aristotle's Meteorology Book 4 provides an account of the formation of minerals, metals, and other homogeneous stuffs. Eric Lewis argues that, in doing so, it offers fresh insight into Aristotle's conception of matter. The four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) do have matter, and their matter is the contraries - hot and cold, moist and dry. Lewis further argues that in the text translated here, the only extant ancient commentary on the Meteorology, Alexander of Aphrodisias supports this interpretation of Aristotle. Such a conception of matter complements the account given at an earlier point in the corpus of Aristotle's works in On Generation and Corruption, and is confirmed by the account at later points in the biological works, although it adds further detail. Meteorology 4 emerges as an important book. Alexander's commentary is here translated into English for the first time
Commentaire sur les "Météores" d'Aristote by Alexander ( Book )

On Aristotle's "Prior analytics 1.23-31" by Alexander ( Book )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the second half of Book One of the Prior Analytics, Aristotle reflects on the application of the formalized logic has developed in the first half, focusing particularly on the non-modal or assertoric syllogistic developed in the first seven chapters. These reflections lead Alexander of Aphrodisias, who was a great exponent of Aristotelianism in the late second century, to explain and sometimes argue against subsequent developments of Aristotle's logic and alternatives and objections to it, ideas associated mainly with his colleague Theophrastus and with the Stoics."

On Aristotle's "On coming-to-be and perishing 2.2-5" by Alexander ( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This important commentary by Alexander of Aphrodisias on Aristotle's work on biochemistry was previously lost. However, four chapters have been reidentified by Emma Gannage in an Arabic translation and are here presented in English for the first time." "In addition to a translation of the text, this volume includes a detailed introduction demonstrating the authenticity of the work and discussing its contribution to our understanding of ancient science. We learn how Alexander attempted to provide a theory that would unite Aristotle's chemistry with his elemental physics."--Jacket
