Simplicius on Aristotle's Physics 6 by Simplicius ( Book )
13 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and held by 551 libraries worldwide
"Aristotle's Physics is about the causes of motion and culminates in a proof that God is needed as the ultimate cause of motion. Aristotle argues that things in motion need to be moved by something other than themselves - he rejects Plato's self-movers. On pain of regress, there must be an unmoved mover. If this unmoved mover is to cause motion eternally, it needs infinite power. It cannot, then, be a body, since bodies, being of finite size, cannot house infinite power. The unmoved mover is therefore an incorporeal God." "Simplicius reveals that his teacher, Ammonius, harmonized Aristotle with Plato to counter Christian charges of pagan disagreement, by making Aristotle's God a cause not only of beginningless movement, but also of beginningless existence of the universe. Eternal existence, no less than eternal motion, calls for an infinite, and hence incorporeal, force. This anti-Christian interpretation turned Aristotle's God from a thinker into a certain kind of Creator, and so helped to make Aristotle's God acceptable to Saint Thomas Aquinas in the thirteenth century."--Jacket.
On Aristotle's Physics 2 by Simplicius ( Book )
28 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 451 libraries worldwide
Simplicius, the greatest surviving ancient authority on Aristotle's Physics, lived in the sixth century A.D. He produced detailed commentaries on several of Aristotle's works. Those on the Physics, which alone come to over 1,300 pages in the original Greek, preserve a centuries-old tradition of ancient scholarship on Aristotle. In Physics Book 5 Aristotle lays down some of the principles of his dynamics and theory of change. What does not count as a change: change of relation? the flux of time? There is no change of change, yet acceleration is recognised. Aristotle defines 'continuous', 'contact', and 'next', and uses these definitions in discussing when we can claim that the same change or event is still going on.
On Aristotle's On the soul 1.1-2.4 by Simplicius ( Book )
24 editions published between 1527 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 367 libraries worldwide
Simplicius' On Aristotle's "On the Soul 1.1-2.4" is a major source for late Neoplatonist theories of thought and sense perception and offers considerable insight into an important area of Aristotelian philosophy. The present volume is the only English translation of the commentary and affords its readers the opportunity to consider the question of its disputed authorship. While most scholars attribute authorship of On Aristotle's "On the Soul 1.1-2.4" to Simplicius, some have judged it to be the work of Priscian, or of another philosopher. The commentary discusses the first half of On the Soul, which comprises Aristotle's survey of his predecessors' views, as well as his own account of the nature of the soul.

"Chapters 5 and 6 of Aristotle's Categories describe his first two categories, Substance and Quantity. It is usually thought that Plotinus attacked Aristotle's Categories, but that Porphyry and Iamblichus restored it to the curriculum once and for all. However, Frans de Haas stresses that Porphyry drew much of his defense of Aristotle from Plotinus' critical discussion." "Simplicius' commentary is the most comprehensive account of the debate on the validity of Aristotle's Categories. Simplicius discusses where the differentia of a species (for instance, the rationality of humans) fits into the scheme of categories. Another is why Aristotle elevates the category of Quantity to second place, above the category of Quality. Further, de Haas shows how Simplicius arrives at multiple definitions of "universal" to solve some of the problems."--BOOK JACKET.

"In these three chapters of On the Heavens, Aristotle argues that the universe in ungenerated and indestructible. In Simplicius's commentary there is a battle between the Neoplatonist Simplicius and the Aristotelian Alexander, whose lost commentary on Aristotle's On the Heavens Simplicius partly preserves." "Simplicius's rival, the Christian Philoponus, had conducted a parallel battle in his Against Proclus, but had taken the side of Alexander against Proclus and other Platonists, arguing that Plato's Timaeus gives a beginning to the universe. Simplicius takes the Platonist side, denying that Plato intended a beginning. The origin to which Plato refers is, according to Simplicius, not a temporal origin, but the divine cause that produces the world without beginning."--Jacket.
