  3. Ruth Glasner (2001). Ibn Rushd's Theory of Minima Naturalia. Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 11 (1):9-26.
    The essence of the theory of minima naturalia is the contention that a physical body is not infinitely divisible qua that specific body. A drop of water cannot be divided again and again and still maintain its “wateriness”. There are several statements in Aristotle's Physics which suggest such an interpretation, and the theory of minima naturalia is commonly considered to have originated in the thirteenth century as an interpretation of these statements. The present paper is a preliminary presentation of the (...)

  7. Ruth Glasner (1996). Gersonides's Theory of Natural Motion1. Early Science and Medicine 1 (2):151-203.
    Gersonides rejects the basic tenets of the Aristotelian theory of natural motion, and offers an alternative original account. He does not introduce his theory systematically nor argues openly with Aristotle, but conveyes his ideas through a subtle and sophisticated work of exegesis. Developing ideas of Aristotle, Averroes and Themistius, he eventually ends up with a different theory. Gersonides presupposes neither that there are absolute natural places, which are the final causes of natural motion, nor that there is inclination in the (...)

  8. Ruth Glasner (1996). The Hebrew Version of De Celo Et Mundo Attributed to Ibn Sīnā. Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 6 (01):89-.
    The Hebrew text On the Heavens and the World, ascribed to Ibn S, is an interesting and intriguing composition. It dates from the 13th century and was quite influential. It is not a translation of any text of Ibn S known to us, but is related to the (pseudo-Avicennian) Latin De celo et mundo, which appears in the 1508 Venice edition of translations of Ibn S. The Latin and Hebrew texts differ widely and the relation between them is far from (...)
