Alexander of Aphrodisias


Alexander of Aphrodisias
(fl. 3rd c. AD)
Peripatetic philosopher. Alexander began lecturing at Athens around 200. He was an Aristotelian, singularly free from the mystical religious Platonism characteristic of the time (see Middle Platonism ). His own doctrines included denial of the reality of time and of the immortality of the soul, but it is as a commentator on Aristotle that he is primarily known.
