This volume presents a panorama of Syriac engagement with Aristotelian philosophy primarily situated in the 6th to the 9th centuries, but also ranging to the : John W. Watt. The two centuries following the rise of the Abbasid caliphate in witnessed a wave of translations from Greek into Syriac and Arabic.

The translation and reception of Aristotle's "Rhetoric" is a prime example for the resulting transformation of antique learning in the Islamic world and beyond. Syriac interest in Greek philosophy included both its ‘elite’ (theoretical) and ‘popular’ aspects.

This chapter provides a survey of both, and in particular argues that the latter also includes an interest in political philosophy.

While not usually credited with being a particularly original thinker, he had an encyclopedic command both of Arabic and Islamic thought, especially that of Avicenna and al-Ġazālī, as well as of the Greek tradition as it was preserved in Syriac.

Syriac is the important branch of the group of Semitic languages known as Aramaic. In the time of Alexander the Great, Aramaic was the official language of all the nations from Asia Minor to Persia, from Armenia to Arabian Peninsula.

It was divided into two dialects: the western, used in Palestine and Syria by the Jews, Palmyrans, and Nabateans; the eastern, spoken in Babylonia by the Jews. Description This volume contains the Syriac text, edited for the first time, of the commentary on Aristotle's Rhetoric by Bar Hebraeus (died ) in his Cream of Wisdom.

The text is accompanied by an English translation, and the volume also includes an introduction, commentary, and three glossaries (Syriac, Greek and Arabic).

This work was published c. – and involved a close scrutiny of the first chapters of Aristotle’s On the Heavens (his theory of ether as the fifth element, of which the heavenly bodies are made) and the eighth book of the Physics (arguing for the eternity of time and motion).

The volume also includes essays which explicitly focus upon the historical reception of Aristotle, from the time of the Greek and Syriac transmission of his texts into the Islamic world to the period of their integration and assimilation into Arabic philosophy.

A leading figure in the teaching and commentary tradition of Aristotelian philosophy, especially in logic and syllogisms, Severus produced a Discourse on Syllogisms in Prior Analytics ( CE) and wrote commentaries on other philosophical texts. He translated into Syriac Paul the Persian's commentary on Aristotle's De interpretatione.

Among his chief works was an encyclopaedia of philosophy, Ḥēʾwath ḥekkmthā (“The Butter of Wisdom”), in which he commented on every branch .Syriac translations. Syriac plays an important role in modern text-criticism even today.

The Oxford Classical issue of the Greek text of Aristotle's Organon uses the sigla Ρ, Ι, and Γ, which are texts dating from Christian possessions from the 6th to 8th century. Syriac translations played a major role for the later reception into Arabic. These translators from Syriac were mostly Nestorian.
