(p.1) Introduction
Plato and Aristotle in Agreement?

George E. Karamanolis (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter addresses the question why Aristotle’s philosophy attracted so much attention by Platonists in late antiquity. The author argues that Platonic (that is, Plato’s) philosophy was subject to different reconstructions by Platonists, who often resorted to Aristotle in order to reconstruct parts of it. It then examines the main philosophical issues on which Platonists focused when discussing Aristotle’s philosophy and its relation to Platonic. Finally, it briefly reviews the evidence regarding the Peripatetic positions on how Aristotle’s philosophy compares with Plato’s.

Keywords:   Aristotle’s philosophy, Platonic philosophy, Platonist, Peripatetic
