Averroes’ work for the Aristotelian revival in the 12th and 13th centuries. Averroes wrote short commentaries on Aristotle’s work in logic, physics, and psychology. Averroes long commentaries provided an in depth line by line analysis of Aristotle’s:

“Posterior Analytics,” (production of scientific knowledge and the statement of a thing’s nature),

“De Anima,” (the nature of living things, different kinds of living things, distinguished by their different operations)

 

de Anima

 

“Physics,” (philosophical principles of natural or moving things, living and non-living, rather than physical theories in the modern sense)

“De Caelo,” (on the heavenly bodies most perfect realities whose motions are ruled by principles other than those of bodies in the sublunary sphere; such as the four classical elements; earth, water, air, fire)

And “Metaphysics” (examines what can be asserted about anything that exists just because of its existence and not because of any special qualities it has).
