Vortragstitel
HIS MASTER'S VOICE? Thomas Aquinas, Chrysostomus Javelli and the Scientific Textbook
Zum Thema
How do you present the entire corpus of Aristotelian natural philosophy in a short little book, less than half the length of the Physics? What should you leave in, what should you leave out? These are the problems faced by one Renaissance commentator on Aristotle. Though presenting himself as a fidus interpres of the Tomist corpus in his Epitome philosophiae naturalis, Crisostomo Javelli often departs from Thomas. These departures, however, are not in the conclusions, but rather in how he arrives at those conclusions. It is one aim of this lecture to stress the importance of texture in the reading of philosophy. A secondary aim relates to the relationship between text and doctrine in a given institutional context. Javelli seems more concerned to separate the theological from the philosophical material. Javelli's handling of his material shows the influence of the university curriculum of his time, and, further, demonstrates a move from exposition of the text of Aristotle's Physics, to exposition of an unstable body of doctrines: "Thomist Aristotelianism".
