Abstract

The primary aim of this paper is to present Alexander’s understanding of the common sense and its functions. In doing so, I keep an eye on Alexander’s agreement with or departure from Aristotle and indicate his contributions to the subject matter. The secondary aim of this paper is to discuss one particular point of departure which came to dominate later reception of Aristotle’s notion of the common sense.
