English The rediscovery of Aristotle in the Middle Ages is one of the most impor¬tant events in the history of (late) medieval philosophy. The twelfth and thirteenth centuries saw Latin translations of major parts of the Corpus Aristotelicum both from the Greek and the Arabic. Through these transla¬tions, Aristotle, who until then had mainly been known –via Boethius’s translations– as a teacher of logic, became the authority in several oth¬er domains such as metaphysics, ethics, and natural philosophy. This rapid appropriation of Aristotelian thought was stimulated by the rise of Universities in the same period. In this article, the history of the rediscovery of Aristotle in the Middle Ages is explained in the form of a short narrative that covers the (partially arbitrary) period from 1200 to 1300. This article, published in a series that was the most extensive and comprehensive history of philosophy ever published, is the most up-to-date presentation of the subject.
