Abstract

The purpose of this article is to provide a reconstruction of the interpretation given by Galileo Galilei to the Aristotelian theory of demonstration.The doctrine of proof plays a central role in Galilei’s methodology and for this reason it is particularly important to deep the theories of the demonstration which had an impact on his education.Through the critical edition and the translation of the quaestio In quo conveniant et differant demonstratio propter quid et quia, et de huius divisione is possible to identify more precisely the role played in Galileo’s education by epistemological theories of Aristotle, Alexander of Aphrodisias, Averroes, Galen and by Commentators who taught at the University of Padua in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
