Abstract

In the commentary, we first discuss general differences between the Restoration and the Greek text as edited by Menge (1896), with an emphasis on the use of structure in Thabit’s text. This is followed by a detailed commentary of the text, proposition-byproposition, that provides a new interpretation of the concepts and methods of the Greek text as well as comparing the Restoration with the Greek text and al-Ṭusi’s Revision.
