La Causalité humaine. Sur le De fato d'Alexandre d'Aphrodise

Abstract : At the end of the 2nd century AD, Alexander of Aphrodise, holder of the Imperial Chair of Peripatetic Philosophy, presented the "Aristotle's doctrine on fate and "what depends on us"". His purpose is twofold: he wants to build a peripatetic theory of fate, a question that had hitherto been marginal in the Peripatos, and to refute the partisans of a hard conception of destiny, in which one should undoubtedly see Stoics. The polemic occupies almost the entire De fato, which is a major document on determinism in the Antiquity. The book describes how, through the exegesis of aritotelian texts, Alexander elaborates another conception of fate and proposes a libertarian reformulation of "what depends on us".
