Al-Farabi's Short Commentary on Aristotle's Prior Analytics

Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 1963. First American edition. Hardcover. Octavo. 132pp. Original printed dust-jacket over burgundy cloth with black lettering on spine. During the years 800-1200 A.D., Arabic scholars studied many of the works of Greek philosophy, and recorded their interpretations. Significant Arabic interpretations of Aristotle's Prior Analytics, the key work of his logical Organon, however, have remained largely unavailable in the West. The recent discovery of several Arabic manuscripts in Istanbul revealed the “Short Commentary on Prior Analytics” by the medieval Arabic philosopher al-Farabi. Nicholas Rescher here presents the first translation of this work in English, and supplements this with an informative introduction and numerous explanatory footnotes. Upper front wrap slightly creased. Dust-jacket, binding and interior in overall very good condition. vg. Item #32384
