(p.200) 7 The Second Century
Aristotle’s Categories in the Early Roman Empire

Michael J. Griffin

Oxford University Press

This chapter very briefly surveys subsequent developments in the tradition of the Categories, including Alexander of Aphrodisias and Galen. It touches in a limited way on Alcinous (who offers an example of a Platonist using the ten categories) and Atticus (who wrote against ’those who interpret Plato’s philosophy by means of Aristotle’). The chapter also reviews Peripatetics like Aspasius and Adrastus, who commented on the Categories. It also touches on Alexander of Aphrodisias and his teachers Herminus and Sosigenes, and an important passage from Galen’s writing On My Own Books.

Keywords:   Alexander of Aphrodisias, Galen, Categories, Aristotle, philosophy of language, metaphysics
