This volume offers the first critical edition of the medieval Latin translations of Aristotle's On the movement of animals (De motu animalium) and On the progression of animals (De progressu animalium). It was in the translation by William of Moerbeke, made in the early sixties of the thirteenth century, that these texts were known to medieval readers. They circulated at the University of Paris as a part of Aristotle's Books on Animals (Book XI and XII respectively), but also figured in a collection of short Aristotelian and pseudo-Aristotelian treatises (including the physiological Parva Naturalia).The introduction first considers the textual tradition of these translations and then focuses on Moerbeke's Greek sources. It appears that, as in many other cases, Moerbeke continued to revise his initial translations. This is especially clear for De motu animalium, of which three chronologically distinct versions are extant.
