Summary expansion
Eustratius, one of a group of Byzantine commentators on Aristotle, was better known for his commentary on the Nicomachean ethics, issued for the first time by the Scoti just a few months before the present work. The Aristotelian text is one of the key texts in the history of Western thought, as it established the basis in Aristotelian philosophy for scientific reasoning. Eustratius' commentary is followed by an anonymous commentary on the same text, translated by Gratiolo from a Greek manuscript
