We are pleased to announce that our two latest volumes in the series are now published.
Aristotle Re-Interpreted has been reviewed at BMCR:
"... building on the extraordinary achievements of the Ancient Commentators on Aristotle project, AR is a valuable collection of groundbreaking studies, which, together with AT, constitutes a must-read for any scholar and student of philosophy and Classics"
Read the full review at www.bmcreview.org/2017/12/20171234.html
The bibliography of work on the Ancient Commentators has now been updated and includes material up to 2016. It is available here, alongside two earlier bibliographies. We hope that between them they give fairly full coverage of the scholarly literature.
We also have a new bibliographical guide to the commentary tradition in Greek, Syriac, and Arabic philosophy, arranged chronologically from Andronicus to Averroes (available on the same page).
We welcome any corrections, additions, reports of typos, and so on, which can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are pleased to announce the publication of the first of four volumes due out this year: Olympiodorus, On Plato First Alcibiades 10-28, by Michael Griffin.
Three further volumes are all now in proof stage and will be published over the Summer. For further details see the Spring 2016 Newsletter, available here.
We are pleased to note a recent critical review entitled ‘Philoponus and His Development: Four Recent Translations on Nature, Knowledge, and the Physical World’ in The International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 9 (2015), 89-98, by Gary Gabor [DOI: 10.1163/18725473-12341302].
‘The quality of both the translations and the notes of all four volumes is very high […] all make substantial and valuable scholarly contributions in their notes and translations of the texts.’
‘The richness and variety of Philoponus’ intellectual interests and abilities as a philosopher and commentator are all ably displayed in these four volumes. The editors and translators of each volume are to be thanked and commended for their service in making these translations available.’
