Main Article Content

Celia LÓPEZ ALCALDE

Abstract

The Sententia cum questionibus in libros De anima I–II Aristotelis (c. 1240) by Petrus Hispanus provides the first quotations of the Guide for the Perplexed by Maimonides in a Latin commentary to the De anima. This paper aims to show the textual context of these references and to provide some remarks on the role they play in the theory of the intellect in this commentary.
