Green in The Astrolabes of the World, edited by R. T. Gunther, Vol. Paul Lettinck has restored a lost text of Philoponus by translating it for the first time from Arabic (only limited fragments have survived in the original Greek). The text, recovered from annotations in an Arabic translation of Aristotle, is an abridging paraphrase of Philoponus' commentary on Physics Books , with two final comments on Book 8.

Aristotle's subject here is time, and his treatment of it had led to controversy in earlier writers. The project has published a series of explanatory volumes alongside the translations, beginning with Philoponus and the Rejection of Aristotelian Science in and Aristotle Transformed in These were joined, in , by a three-volume source book: The Philosophy of the same year proceedings of a major conference organized by the project were also published: Philosophy.

    Regarding the secondary literature on this theory Golitsis, n. refers to a criticism by Christian Wildberg (“Impetus Theory and the Hermenuetics of Science in Simplicius and Philoponus,” Hyperboreus 5 [] ) of a paper by Michael Wolff, “Philoponus and Rise of Pre-classical Dynamics,” in R. Sorabji (ed.), Philoponus and Author: Robert B. Todd. Aristotelianism is the philosophy of Aristotle and of those later philosophical movements based on his thought. The extent to which Aristotelian thought has become a component of civilization can hardly be overestimated. Read more about Aristotelianism and its impact here.
