About Todros Todrosi's Medieval Hebrew Translation of al-Farabī's Lost Long Commentary/Gloss-Commentary On Aristotle's Topics, Book VIII
Abstract:Among the many logical works by Abu Nasr Muhammad al-Farabī (870-950), there are two commentaries on particular books or points of Aristotle's Topics, whose original Arabic text has been apparently lost. A number of quotations of one or both of them, translated into Hebrew, has been recently found in a philosophical anthology by a fourteenth-century Provencal Jewish scholar, Todros Todrosi. In this article, a detailed list of these quotations is given, and a tentative short examination of the contents of each of them is offered.
