Abstract

A GREEK PARALLEL TO BOETHIUS’ DE HYPOTHETICIS SYLLOGISMIS by SUSANNE BOBZIEN A bstract In this paper I present the text, a translation, and a commentary of a long anonymous scholium to Aristotle’s Analytics which is a Greek paral- lel to Boethius’ De Hypotheticis Syllogismis , but has so far not been recog- nized as such. The scholium discusses hypothetical syllogisms of the types modus ponens and modus tollens and hypothetical syllogisms constructed from three conditionals (‘wholly hypothetical syllogisms’). It is Peripatetic, and not Stoic, in its theoretical approach as well as its terminology. There are several elements of early Peripatetic hypothetical syllogistic preserved in it, and there is a large number of close parallels to Boethius’ De Hypotheticis Syllogismis which we Ž nd in no other source. It is very likely that there was a Greek source from which both the scholium and large parts of Boethius’ De Hypotheticis Syllogismis are ultimately derived. Boethius’ logical treatise De Hypotheticis Syllogismis ( HS ) is the only complete work on hypothetical syllogisms that has survived from antiquity. With regard to most of the text we do not know what sources he drew from. 1 ) There is evidence that several
