    Is Being a Genus? Syrianus’ Criticism of Aristotle.Roberto Granieri - 2022 - Phronesis 67 (2):216-251.
    In Metaphysics B 3 Aristotle sets out a famous argument for the thesis that being is not a genus. In his commentary on Metaphysics B, Syrianus criticizes this argument and explains in what sense being is to be regarded as a genus. I reconstruct both Syrianus’ criticisms and his own view. I bring out ways in which they can help us rethink key assumptions of Aristotle’s ontology and shed light both on Syrianus’ critical attitude towards Aristotle and on some of (...)

    Systems of Predication. Aristotle’s Categories in Topics, I, 9.Roberto Granieri - 2016 - Documenti E Studi Sulla Tradizione Filosofica Medievale 27:1-18.
    In this paper I investigate Aristotle’s account of predication in Topics I 9. I argue for the following interpretation. In this chapter Aristotle (i) presents two systems of predication cutting across each other, the system of the so-called four ‘predicables’ and of the ten ‘categories’, in order to distinguish them and explore their mutual relationship. I propose a semantic interpretation of the relationship between them. According to this reading, every proposition formed through a predicable constitutes at the same time a (...)

    Xenocrates and the Two-Category Scheme.Roberto Granieri - 2021 - Apeiron 54 (3):261-285.
    Simplicius reports that Xenocrates and Andronicus reproached Aristotle for positing an excessive number of categories, which can conveniently be reduced to two: τὰ καθ᾽αὑτά and τὰ πρός τι. Simplicius, followed by several modern commentators, interprets this move as being equivalent to a division into substance and accidents. I aim to show that, as far as Xenocrates is concerned, this interpretation is untenable and that the substance-accidents contrast cannot be equivalent to Xenocrates’ per se-relative one. Rather, Xenocrates aimed to stress the (...)

  5. L’ontologie du plaisir dans le Philèbe et le vocabulaire platonicien de l’être.Roberto Granieri - forthcoming - Philosophie Antique.
    Dans cet article on se propose d’examiner les fondements ontologiques de l’argument anti-hédoniste de Philèbe 53c4-55a1. On soutiendra que l’usage des notions de γένεσις et οὐσία dans cet argument ne montre ni un abandon de la thèse de l’opposition du sensible à l’intelligible, ni, pour autant, une application mécanique de cette thèse. On souhaite montrer, en revanche, que ces notions jouissent d’une relativité sémantique telle que leurs significations varient en fonction des contextes argumentatifs, dont le passage retenu du Philèbe est (...)

  6. Relativity, Categories and Principles in the Divisio Aristotelea 67M/32DL.Roberto Granieri - forthcoming - Journal of Hellenic Studies.
    The Divisio Aristotelea 67M/32DL establishes a distinction between two categories of beings, per se and relatives. I defend three main theses. First, the relation of dependence characterizing the members of the πρός τι category is modal and symmetrical in nature and, accordingly, the per se-relatives contrast cannot be equivalent to the substance-accidents contrast. Second, the type of relativity relevant to this divisio is both ontological and semantic in nature (but with different emphases depending on the version of the divisio considered). (...)

  7. Riferimento, essere e partecipazione. Prm. 160b5-163b6 e il Sofista.Roberto Granieri - forthcoming - In Selected Papers of the Symposium Platonicum XII .
    This paper examines the fifth deduction (160b4-163b5) of the second part of the Parmenides and its connection with the Sophist. I argue that, far from providing us with clear formulations of arguments and theses developed in the Sophist, D5 aims to stimulate us to reflect on two main problems, which are relevant for the ontology and the theory of predication of the Sophist. First, the ontological requirements of the extra-linguistic correlates of contentful thought and meaningful speech. Second, the function of (...)
