This edition, originally compiled in 1984, is now published for the first time with a short philological introduction.

Middle Commentary on De Anima

Submitted by David Wirmer on 15th October 2018

This commentary on Aristotle’s On the Soul can probably be dated to 577/1181. Whether it was composed before or after the Long Commentary on the same work is highly debated in the research literature.
