Example text

Vi) GC II. 10. 337a24–5: ‘Time, then, is a way of numbering some continuous movement, and therefore cyclical movement, as was determined in our discussions at the beginning (ŒÆŁÜðåæ Kí ôïEò Kí Iæ÷fi çÐ ºüªïØò äØøæßóŁç)’. This refers to the proof in Physics VIII. 9 that only cyclical movement is continuous; for time’s relation to continuous movement see Physics IV. 14. 25 rhetorical rather than dialectical.

I. 2 cita anche il problema della mescolanza e del rapporto azione-passione, che non risultano nemmeno accennati nell’introduzione del cap. I. ’ This is false if ‘l’introduzione del cap. I. 2’ means the lines 315a26–9, as Migliori seems to suppose (he refers (p. 23 n. 28) to 315a26–8), but true if it means ‘the introduction to GC provided by I. 2 as a whole’ (the relevant reference should then be to 315b4–5).
