Example text

Already in antiquity, biographers and scholars were aware that certain works attributed to Aristotle were not his. Hesychius concludes his list by appending ten works (items 188–97) he labels as spurious (pseudoepigrapha). Moreover, there are reasons to believe that such works were known to Andronicus, the first editor of Aristotle’s works (see below), several centuries earlier (Düring 1957: 91). Indeed, almost all of the last twenty-nine items listed as non-spurious in Hesychius’ catalogue do not correspond to any items in the lists of Diogenes Laertius or Ptolemy al-Garib and their authenticity is questionable, with some scholars surmising that they are titles of books that were in the libraries of Rhodes or Pergamon (see Düring 1957: 91).

The rest of the tradition has been added later in mythical form with a view of the persuasion of the multitude and to its utilitarian expediency; they say these gods are in the form of men . . ” 10 See the accounts of Justin Martyr, Gregorius Nazianzenus, Procopius, and Eustathius about the connection between Aristotle’s death and his inability to explain the tides of Euripus in Düring (1957: 347). 12 aristotle’s life 11 Düring (p. 462) reaches conclusions similar to Jaeger’s: “Aristotle left Athens in the middle of a political turmoil and died the same year, a lonely man.

5 Comments on the relation between Aristotle and Alexander (and Philip) can be found in the biographical tradition of late antiquity (see Düring 1957: 284–8), but most scholars consider them an unreliable source. 6 There is diversity of scholarly opinion about many matters relating to Aristotle’s school. Despite ancient testimony (see Düring 1957: 404–11) that Aristotle established a school, Düring (pp. 460–1) argues that Aristotle did not found a school like Plato’s Academy, and that the peripatetic school was established after his death.
