Sample text

But no one has undertaken a criticism of this kind 20 which I believe would be bound to fail. One of the works merits our particular attention. The Nature of Man. I am not as convinced as Jouanna that it forms an obvious literary unity but the unity of authorship seems to me undeniable (see Jouanna, 1969, pp. 150157). The Nature of Man is attributed to Poly bus by Aristotle as far as Chapter 11 is concerned, in the History of Animals (HA, III, 3, 512a-513b) and as far as the first chapters are concerned in the Anonymus Londinensis.

Apart from these difficulties, he has to convince himself that the uniting of Polybus, author of the Nature of Man, and Polybus, student and son-inlaw of Hippocrates was probably the creation of Dioscurides and Capiton, deceived perhaps by an unfortunate similarity of name (Smith, 1979, pp. 220, 221). This is to prefer skeptical conjecture to some solid facts that can be seriously corroborated. It is appropriate here to consider the more subtly shaded views of lloyd who stressed the doctrinal divergences separating some works from certain others that have been accepted here as of Coan origin.
