    Proclus' Account of Explanatory Demonstrations in Mathematics and its Context.Orna Harari - 2008 - Archiv für Geschichte der Philosophie 90 (2):137-164.
    I examine the question why in Proclus' view genetic processes provide demonstrative explanations, in light of the interpretation of Aristotle's theory of demonstration in late antiquity. I show that in this interpretation mathematics is not an explanatory science in the strict sense because its objects, being immaterial, do not admit causal explanation. Placing Proclus' account of demonstrative explanation in this context, I argue that this account is aimed at answering the question whether mathematical proofs provide causal explanation as opposed to (...)

    The Concept of Existence and the Role of Constructions in Euclid's Elements.Orna Harari - 2003 - Archive for History of Exact Sciences 57 (1):1-23.
    This paper examines the widely accepted contention that geometrical constructions serve in Greek mathematics as proofs of the existence of the constructed figures. In particular, I consider the following two questions: first, whether the evidence taken from Aristotle's philosophy does support the modern existential interpretation of geometrical constructions; and second, whether Euclid's Elements presupposes Aristotle's concept of being. With regard to the first question, I argue that Aristotle's ontology cannot serve as evidence to support the existential interpretation, since Aristotle's ontological (...)

    Logic and Interpretation: Syllogistic Reconstructions in Simplicius’ Commentary on Aristotle’s Physics.Orna Harari - 2021 - History of Philosophy & Logical Analysis 24 (1):122-139.
    In this article I explain three puzzling features of Simplicius’ use of syllogistic reconstructions in his commentary on Aristotle’s Physics: Why does he reconstruct Aristotle’s non-argumentative remarks? Why does he identify the syllogistic figure of an argument but does not explicitly present its reconstruction? Why in certain lemmata does he present several reconstructions of the same argument? Addressing these questions, I argue that these puzzling features are an expression of Simplicius’ assumption that formal reasoning underlies Aristotle’s prose, hence they reflect (...)
