Sapere XXIII: Cosmic Order and Divine Power

- Ps.-Aristotle, On the Cosmos

Cosmic Order and Divine Power, eingeleitet, übersetzt und mit interpretierenden Essays versehen von Johan C. Thom / Renate Burri / Clive Chandler / Hans Daiber / Jill Kraye / Andrew Smith / Hidemi Takahashi / Anna Tzvetkova-Glaser , Tübingen 2014

The treatise De mundo offers a cosmology in the Peripatetic tradition which subordinates what happens in the cosmos to the might of an omnipotent god. Thus the work is paradigmatic for the philosophical and religious concepts of the early imperial age, which offer points of contact with nascent Christianity.
