Example text

Despite his thinly disguised polemical intent, Epicurus apparently showed considerable appreciation for the career of Aristotle, who, despite a non-philosophical past, developed a remarkable philosophical outlook (one which Epicurus later called into question—at least partially). The text that has most influenced studies on the presence of Aristotle in the Garden comes from a Herculaneum papyrus. The text is part of a letter, (probably) by Epicurus, which was preserved by Philodemus in his book Πρὸς τοὺς φασκοβιβλιακούς (Against Those Who Call Themselves Connoisseurs 5 Verde 2015a.

But an accident cannot act as an efficient cause on the body in the same way that a form can. 86 This brings us back to a dilemma we saw earlier. Either way, Aristotelian psychology and hylomorphism took a historical turn toward materialism. 87 Theophrastus’ and Strato’s emphasis on the role of pneuma leads by another path to the same reconsideration of the status of Aristotelian form. If the eclipse of the libraries of Aristotle and Theophrastus played a role in the development of the Hellenistic Peripatos, it was thus much less determinate than the very early philosophical orientation of the Peripatetics toward a certain Aristotle.

9 It seems to demonstrate Epicurus’ knowledge not only of Aristippus’ treatise On Socrates, and Speusippus’ Praise of Plato, but also of Ἀριστοτέ[λους τὰ] Ἀναλυτικὰ καὶ [τὰ Περὶ] φ̣ύσεως, namely the Analytics (though it is difficult to tell whether Prior or Posterior), and Aristotle’s books On Nature. On the basis of the title of Philodemus’ work, it can be assumed that Philodemus aimed to introduce Epicurus (or the author of the letter) as an authentic connoisseur of books in order to preserve his philosophical credentials and exculpate him from the (traditional anti-Epicurean) charge of ignorance.
