Abstract

On 14 June 2014, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth signified, to the great delight of all her loyal philosophical subjects, her intention of conferring the honour of Knighthood on Richard Sorabji – “for services to Philosophical Scholarship”. Of Sir Richard’s numerous services, perhaps the most conspicuous, and surely the most familiar to Her Majesty, has been the conception and production of the series of Ancient Commentators on Aristotle, a series which now includes more than a hundred volumes and which was described in the Times Literary Supplement as “a truly breath-taking achievement, with few parallels in the history of scholarly endeavour”. The first volume of the series was published in 1987. In 1990 there appeared a companion volume – a substantial collection of essays entitled Aristotle Transformed. And 2016 was marked by a yet more substantial sequel which received the brotherly name of Aristotle Re-interpreted, and was accompanied by a second edition of its elder sibling.R. Sorabji (ed.), Aristotle Transformed: The Ancient Commentators and their Influence (London, Duckworth 1990, Bloomsbury 20162). – There is a list of the ACA volumes, up to 2015, on pp. 589–593 of AR.First, a note on AT2.
