Centering on Life. Aristotle’s On Youth and Old Age, on Life and Death, on Respiration
The study of the Parva Naturalia has attracted considerable scholarly interest in recent years and their importance as witnesses to Aristotle’s thought on central aspects of his psychology and physiology is now widely recognised. However, the section gathered under the titles On Youth and Old Age, on Life and Death, on Respiration is still neglected in scholarship. The dissertation offers a full commentary on this section with a view to answering some crucial questions with regard to the content, the structure, as well as the basic concepts and ideas governing the text.
