Synopsis

Aristotle is generally considered as a philosopher whose authority characterised the Middle Ages. However, in the sixteenth century alone, more works in Aristotle than throughout the preceding 1000 years were produced. Moreover, the medieval Latin translations were supplanted by new texts. Thus, the entire corpus was made accessible in contemporary Latin before 1600. The whole of Aristotle's oeuvre was subjected to the philosophical reorientation of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries; eventually the new readings of his works influenced contemporary thought on dialectic, science, poetic etc. In thirteen articles, the authors discuss the changing interpretations of Aristotle's works and his influence in various disciplines, from Dante and until the seventeenth century.
