Description

The complete title of the anonymous work is Discorso ove si pruova che per questa parola pedia overo peritia che usa Aristotile nel principio del primo libro de parti d'animali non si possa intender altro che la loica particolare come dice Averroè. The author quotes relevant passages from Theodorus Gaza's Latin translation of Aristotle's De partibus animalium. The Discorso aims at showing how the right meaning of the term pedìa — which was translated by Gaza into peritia — is Logic conceived as a preliminary tool for accessing the study of any philosophical field.
