A Short History of Philosophy





ANALYTICS (Τὰ Αναλυτικά).—The title ANALYTICS given to a portion of the Organon, the logical treatises of Aristotle. It does not appear that Aristotle gave this title to the Prior and Posterior Analytics when the books were written.


Twice, however, in the Metaphysics he uses the term ἀναλυτικά as applicable to the division of logic involved. Once (Metaph., IV. 3) he charges some philosophers with ignorance of analytics, alleging that they hold their position δι᾽ ἀπαιδευσὶαν τῶν ἀναλυτικῶν. And, more directly, referring to his own Logical Treatises, he says (Metaph., VII. 12) that no statement has been made concerning definition in the Analytics, ἐφ᾽ ὁσον ἐν τοῑς ἀναλυτικῑς περὶ ὁρισμοῡ μὴ ἐίρηταν.

The title τὰ ἀναλυτικά was afterwards applied to the books now bearing the name, which treat of the analysis of thought, the Prior dealing with the syllogism, the Posterior with proof and the conditions of knowledge.
