Agostino Nifo, philosopher and physician, taught at Padua from 1492-1499. He published influential commentaries on nearly all of Aristotle's works usually (as in the present volume) providing his own translation from the Greek. Nifo's commentary was first published in 1526 while he was teaching at Salerno
