Aristotle’s Categories in the Early Roman Empire

Michael J. Griffin

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that Lucius, a critic of the Categories named by Simplicius, criticized the Categories as an inadequate treatment of ontology, and that his criticisms attracted a response from Boethus of Sidon. It also attempts to show that the criticisms offered by Lucius and Nicostratus – two figures often conflated by Simplicius – can be at least provisionally distinguished from one another.

Keywords:   Lucius, Nicostratus, Platonist, Academic, metaphysics
