  1. Towards a Science of the Individual: The Aristotelian Search for Scientific Knowledge of Individual Entities.Alfredo Marcos - 2004 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 35 (1):73-89.
    This article seeks to take a step towards recognizing that science can deal with the concrete and individual as well as the universal. I shall concentrate on some of Aristotle’s texts, as there is a long tradition going back to Aristotle, according to which science deals only with the universal, although his work also contains texts of a very different tenor. He tries to improve the process of definition as an attempt to bring science closer to the concrete, but ends (...)

  • Explicit Nomenclature and Classification in Pliny’s Natural History XXXII.Andrea Guasparri - 2013 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 44 (3):347-353.
    Pliny’s Natural History has been traditionally considered as the unoriginal work of an uncritical compiler. This has also been held to be true of the “biological” books, especially when one compares them with the works of Aristotle, one of Pliny’s main authorities in this domain. Aristotle’s achievements would be remarkable, especially in the field of classification, of which the philosopher is traditionally celebrated as the scientific father. However, by carefully reading HN XXXII it is possible to find a certain “taxonomic” (...)

  • Atoms, Complexes, and Demonstration: Posterior Analytics 96b15-25.Owen Goldin - 2004 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 35 (4):707-727.
    There is agreement neither concerning the point that is being made in Posterior analytics 96b15–25 nor the issue Aristotle intends to address. There are two major lines of interpretation of this passage. According to one, sketched by Themistius and developed by Philoponus and Eustratius, Aristotle is primarily concerned with determining the definitions of the infimae species that fall under a certain genus. They understand Aristotle as arguing that this requires collating definitional predictions, seeing which are common to which species. Pacius, (...)

  • On What Ontology is and Not-Is.Karin Verelst - 2008 - Foundations of Science 13 (3):347-370.
    In this paper I investigate the relation between physics and metaphysics in Plato’s participation theory. I show that the logic shoring up Plato’s metaphysics in paraconsistent, as had been suggested already by Graham Priest. The transformation of the paradoxical One-and-Many of the pre-Socratics into a paraconsistent Great-and-Small bridges the abyss between archaic rationality and the world of classical logic based ultimately on the principle of contradiction. Indeed, language is an organ of perception, not simply a means of communication. J. Jaynes, (...)
