    Aristotle’s Intellects: Now and Then.Jonathan Buttaci - 2013 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 87:127-143.
    One of the most highly debated passages in Aristotle is his doctrine of the nous poiētikos of de Anima III.5. The interpretations of its precise nature and operation that were given by ancient and medieval commentators abound also today. With few exceptions, however, present-day interpretations disagree with the ancients and others on the logic of the passage. In particular, while most ancient and medieval commentators agree that there are three intellects or intellectual powers on scene in the passage, most contemporary (...)

    Aristotle’s Generation of Animals: A Critical Guide Ed. By Andrea Falcon, and David Lefebvre.Jonathan A. Buttaci - 2019 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 57 (3):552-554.
    In the summer of 1983, a group of scholars met in Williamstown, MA for a workshop directed by Allan Gotthelf. Many of the papers presented at this meeting grew into Philosophical Issues in Aristotle’s Biology. The aim of the workshop and volume to follow was to engage with Aristotle’s biological works from a genuinely philosophical perspective. That volume was a watershed moment for the “biological turn” in Aristotle studies.The present volume is compiled in the same spirit, growing out of several (...)
