Avicenna (Ibn Sīnā) greatly influenced later medieval thinking about the earth and the cosmos, not only in his own civilization, but also in Hebrew and Latin cultures. The studies presented in this volume discuss the reception of prominent theories by Avicenna from the early 11th century onwards by thinkers like Averroes, Fahraddin ar-Razi, Samuel ibn Tibbon or Albertus Magnus. Among the topics which receive particular attention are the definition and existence of motion and time. Other important topics are covered too, such as Avicenna’s theories of vacuum, causality, elements, substantial change, minerals, floods and mountains. It emerges, among other things, that Avicenna inherited to the discussion an acute sense for the epistemological status of natural science and for the mental and concrete existence of its objects. The volume also addresses the philological and historical circumstances of the textual tradition and sheds light on the translators Dominicus Gundisalvi, Avendauth and Alfred of Sareshel in particular. The articles of this volume are presented by scholars who convened in 2013 to discuss their research on the influence of Avicenna’s physics and cosmology in the Villa Vigoni, Italy.

Il volume pubblica le relazioni presentate nella giornata in commemorazione di Francesco Del Punta (1941-2013), organizzata a Firenze dalla Società Internazionale per lo Studio del Medioevo Latino e dalla Scuola Normale Superiore nel novembre 2014, assieme ai saggi che altri studiosi hanno voluto tributare alla memoria del loro maestro, collega ed amico. L'insieme dei contributi rispecchia la molteplicità degli interessi culturali di Francesco Del Punta, incentrati sulla filosofia del Medio Evo, ma aperti a comprendere anche l'antichità greca e l'età moderna. I saggi interpretano compiutamente i due versanti del compito dello storico della filosofia medievale, così come inteso da Del Punta: la filologia e la critica testuale, da una parte, tese a stabilire testi di sicura affidabilità; il commento e l'analisi dottrinale, dall'altra, finalizzati a sondare la profondità di pensiero che le opere contengono. Nella prospettiva interculturale e multilinguistica cara a Del Punta, e da lui promossa con tutte le sue energie di studioso, docente, e diffusore di sapere, i testi analizzati spaziano dal greco, all'arabo e al latino come lingue di comunicazione filosofica e veicoli di scambio di conoscenza in epoca medievale.

For centuries Aristotle\u2019s most celebrated work has been regarded as a source of inspiration as well as the starting point for every investigation into the structure of reality. Not surprisingly, the topics discussed in the book \u2013 the scientific status of ontology and metaphysics, the foundations of logical truths, the notions of essence and existence, the nature of material objects and their properties, the status of mathematical entities, just to mention some \u2013 are still at the centre of the current philosophical debate and are likely to excite philosophical minds for many years to come.

Averroes against Avicenna on Human Spontaneous Generation: The Starting-Point of a Lasting Debate, 2013

The first criticism of Avicenna in Averroes’s Long Commentary on Metaphysica (II, 993a30-995a20) regards Avicenna’s doctrine of the asexual (so-called ‘spontaneous’) generation of human beings. This criticism is interesting in two main regards. When considered in the general historical context of the confrontation between advocates and opponents of spontaneous generation, the specific debate between Averroes and Avicenna on this issue can be said to have had a long-lasting impact on Latin philosophy up until the Renaissance. Doctrinally, the criticism in question can be taken as a paradigm of Averroes’s more general anti-Avicennian polemic and of the ideological reasons of his dissent towards his illustrious predecessor. In fact, the criticism in questions displays three leitmotivs of Averroes’s dissent towards Avicenna: the harsh tone and the ad personam character of the attack, stressing an error unworthy of Avicenna’s alleged fame in philosophy; the insistence on Avicenna’s agreement and consonance with contemporary thinkers, a fact that in Averroes’s eyes evidences the profound gap separating Avicenna from the ancient masters, depositaries of authentic philosophy; the reproach addressed to Avicenna of being too conversant with, and receptive of, Islamic theology, thus disregarding the requirements of true philosophy. The article shows that in each of these three respects Averroes in fact presents Avicenna’s position in a biased way: indeed Avicenna does not uphold the specific version of human spontaneous generation that Averroes ascribes to him; his doctrine of human spontaneous generation is deeply rooted in ancient philosophy; and his account of this doctrine evidences clear non-religious (and therefore non-theological) traits.

The article aims at providing a comprehensive account of the process of translation of Aristotle's Metaphysics into Arabic during the Middle Ages. It consists of four sections. In the first three, the historical sources regarding the translations are taken into account. Section 1 offers a new interpretation of the available testimonia, and, on their basis, determines more precisely the original extent of the two major Arabic translations of the Metaphysics (by Usṭāṯ and Isḥāq ibn Ḥunayn). Section 2 surveys the extant translations themselves. Section 3 focuses on the translation of one of the books of the Metaphysics (A), and argues for the existence of an Arabic version of this book different from the extant one, as attested by its quotations in Avicenna and al-Shahrastānī. The fourth section, finally, reconsiders the data gathered in the previous three sections: the Arabic translations of the Metaphysics are divided into three consecutive but distinct phases (9th century; first half of 10th century; second half of the 10th century-beginning of the 11th century), and the main features of each of these phases are indicated.

Averroes against Avicenna on Human Spontaneous Generation: The Starting-Point of a Lasting Debate, 2013

The first criticism of Avicenna in Averroes’s Long Commentary on Metaphysica (II, 993a30-995a20) regards Avicenna’s doctrine of the asexual (so-called ‘spontaneous’) generation of human beings. This criticism is interesting in two main regards. When considered in the general historical context of the confrontation between advocates and opponents of spontaneous generation, the specific debate between Averroes and Avicenna on this issue can be said to have had a long-lasting impact on Latin philosophy up until the Renaissance. Doctrinally, the criticism in question can be taken as a paradigm of Averroes’s more general anti-Avicennian polemic and of the ideological reasons of his dissent towards his illustrious predecessor. In fact, the criticism in questions displays three leitmotivs of Averroes’s dissent towards Avicenna: the harsh tone and the ad personam character of the attack, stressing an error unworthy of Avicenna’s alleged fame in philosophy; the insistence on Avicenna’s agreement and consonance with contemporary thinkers, a fact that in Averroes’s eyes evidences the profound gap separating Avicenna from the ancient masters, depositaries of authentic philosophy; the reproach addressed to Avicenna of being too conversant with, and receptive of, Islamic theology, thus disregarding the requirements of true philosophy. The article shows that in each of these three respects Averroes in fact presents Avicenna’s position in a biased way: indeed Avicenna does not uphold the specific version of human spontaneous generation that Averroes ascribes to him; his doctrine of human spontaneous generation is deeply rooted in ancient philosophy; and his account of this doctrine evidences clear non-religious (and therefore non-theological) traits.

Il volume pubblica le relazioni presentate nella giornata in commemorazione di Francesco Del Punta (1941-2013), organizzata a Firenze dalla Società Internazionale per lo Studio del Medioevo Latino e dalla Scuola Normale Superiore nel novembre 2014, assieme ai saggi che altri studiosi hanno voluto tributare alla memoria del loro maestro, collega ed amico. L'insieme dei contributi rispecchia la molteplicità degli interessi culturali di Francesco Del Punta, incentrati sulla filosofia del Medio Evo, ma aperti a comprendere anche l'antichità greca e l'età moderna. I saggi interpretano compiutamente i due versanti del compito dello storico della filosofia medievale, così come inteso da Del Punta: la filologia e la critica testuale, da una parte, tese a stabilire testi di sicura affidabilità; il commento e l'analisi dottrinale, dall'altra, finalizzati a sondare la profondità di pensiero che le opere contengono. Nella prospettiva interculturale e multilinguistica cara a Del Punta, e da lui promossa con tutte le sue energie di studioso, docente, e diffusore di sapere, i testi analizzati spaziano dal greco, all'arabo e al latino come lingue di comunicazione filosofica e veicoli di scambio di conoscenza in epoca medievale.

Avicenna (Ibn Sīnā) greatly influenced later medieval thinking about the earth and the cosmos, not only in his own civilization, but also in Hebrew and Latin cultures. The studies presented in this volume discuss the reception of prominent theories by Avicenna from the early 11th century onwards by thinkers like Averroes, Fahraddin ar-Razi, Samuel ibn Tibbon or Albertus Magnus. Among the topics which receive particular attention are the definition and existence of motion and time. Other important topics are covered too, such as Avicenna’s theories of vacuum, causality, elements, substantial change, minerals, floods and mountains. It emerges, among other things, that Avicenna inherited to the discussion an acute sense for the epistemological status of natural science and for the mental and concrete existence of its objects. The volume also addresses the philological and historical circumstances of the textual tradition and sheds light on the translators Dominicus Gundisalvi, Avendauth and Alfred of Sareshel in particular. The articles of this volume are presented by scholars who convened in 2013 to discuss their research on the influence of Avicenna’s physics and cosmology in the Villa Vigoni, Italy.
