On Aristotle On the Heavens 1.10-12 (Ancient Commentators on Aristotle)

Within the 3 chapters of at the Heavens handled during this quantity, Aristotle argues that the universe is ungenerated and indestructible. In Simplicius' remark, translated right here, we see a conflict royal among the Neoplatonist Simplicius and the Aristotelian Alexander, whose misplaced statement on Aristotle's at the Heavens Simplicius partially preserves.

Les précédents ouvrages de Michel Onfray s'attachaient à définir une esthétique et une morale - qui, l'une comme l'autre, s'autorisaient de l. a. philosophie hédoniste de l'auteur. Avec ce nouveau livre, Onfray s'attaque à los angeles Politique. Ce sera donc, à n'en pas douter, son ouvrage le plus violent et le plus provocateur.

6) shows that if change is to be eternal, there must be both something eternal that causes change (we shall return to this all-important being in section 7), and something eternal in which this change occurs. This latter being is the ‘first heaven’, the sphere of the fixed stars. Since the rest of the cosmos is determined in its essentials by the motions of the heavens, the whole cosmic order is also eternal. These claims (defended, of course, by arguments to which this bare summary does no justice) distinguish Aristotle from all major philosophers of the classical period, with the possible exception of Heraclitus.

These movements are not simply instructions, nor an abstract design or formula: they are derived from the soul of the adult parent, and they are embodied in a material substance carried in the semen, called pneuma. Pneuma, is a concept that plays a large part in Greek physiology, from the earliest times, when it is equated more or less exactly with the breath of life. But Aristotle’s use of the concept is ill defined. He speaks of the ‘connate pneuma’; it is clearly necessary for life, and is especially associated with the faculties of soul such as sensation and movement.
