Geometrical Method and Aristotle's Account of First Principles

Classical Quarterly 29 (02):113- (1935)
Abstract
The object of this paper is to show the predominance of the influence of geometrical ideas in Aristotle's account of first principles in the Posterior Analytics— to show that his analysis of first principles is in its essentials an analysis of the first principles of geometry as he conceived them. My proof of this falls into two parts. I. A consideration of the parallel between Aristotle's and Euclid's account of first principles. II. A comparison between the general movement of thought in the Aristotelian παγωγ and πδειξις and in the δινοια and νησις of the Platonic dialectic
