Aristotle’s theory of demonstration and its logical and metaphysical entanglements
Palavras-chave:Aristotle, Scientist, Scientific knowledge, Editorial.
This special issue of Manuscript brings together articles around the notion of scientific demonstration as expounded by Aristotle in his Later Analytics (henceforth APo). Some articles (Morison and Goldin) have a broader scope in the sense that, being devoted to some topic, are not built around one or another specific passage of the text, while others (Bronstein, Zuppolini, Angioni, Karbowski, Castelli, Fait, Peramatzis, and Crager) specifically focus on one passage, or one chapter, or set of chapters that are usually taken together. Finally, some articles (Corcilius, Zillig, Hankinson, Falcon, and Hasper) deal with topics that, although rooted in (or at least connected to) Aristotle's theory of scientific demonstration, extend to other domains and other treatises, beyond the APo.
