Thesis: The First Book of Olympiodorus’ Commentary on Aristotle’s Meteorology

István Baksa’s research project focused on Olympiodorus’ commentary on Aristotle’s Meteorology with an emphasis on the spatial aspects of the work. He also examined how Olympiodorus’ views relate to his predecessors and contemporaries, for example to Alexander and Philoponus. Parallel with these enquiries, he has translated the first book of the commentary into English.

The dissertation was successfully completed in 2012.


István Baksa, born in 1980, has studied philosophy at the University of Miskolc in Miskolc, Hungary.
