Abstract

Francesco Buonamici was professor of Philosophy at the University of Pisa for almost 40 years. His most important work is the treatise On Motion ( De motu), a huge volume of 1011 pages, which covers the whole range of aspects of Aristotle’s concept of motion. Buonamici supplies a careful survey of the topic, with an extended discussion of the Aristotelian views as well as of the opinions of a number of ancient and early modern authors who played a major (sometimes innovative) role in philosophical debate of the Sixteenth century. His De motu (Buonamici 1951) was read and cited by Galileo, who often used Buonamici’s bulky treatise as a source for mastering Aristotelian natural philosophy.
