About this item

This book presents the oldest commentary on Aristotle written in Arabic, a compendium ofDe Generatione et Corruptione. Its author was the Imamite theologian Ibn M?s? al-Nawbakht? (fl. ca. 900), of whom a single work (among more than forty ones recorded) was known to be extant. This new text sheds light both on the Greek tradition – the author makes extensive use of Alexander’s lost commentary – and on the formative period of Shi’ism.
