Project A04

Processes of Creating Tradition in Late Antique Commentaries of De interpretatione

The project is concerned with the late antique and early medieval Greek and Latin commentaries on Plato’s and Aristotle’s writings on language theory. For a long time, these commentaries were believed to be the prototype of an entirely static tradition of knowledge, hostile towards all creative impulses. This project seeks, however, to examine the diverse and innovative ways in which the commentators structured their arguments when dealing with doctrinal authorities.

A list of publications and events organized by the project can be accessed on the German CRC 980 website.
