Al-Hasan Ibn Musa Al-Nawbahti : Commentary on Aristotle De Generatione et corruptione

edition, translation and commentary

Walter de Gruyter, 2015



This book presents the oldest extant commentary on Aristotle written in Arabic, a compendium of De Generatione et Corruptione. Its author was the Imamite theologian Ibn Musa al-Nawbaht? (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.
