Naṣīr al-Dīn al-Ṭūsī's Comments on Euclid's Data (2019)


This paper is a study of Naṣīr al-Dīn al-Ṭūsī's comments on Euclid's Data. We produce a critical edition, translation and commentary of comments and marginal notes made by al-Ṭūsī in his Revision of the Euclidian text (Taḥrīr kitāb al-Muʿṭayāt li-Uqlīdis). The study results in some insight into what Ṭūsī thought was worth explaining from a mathematical perspective, some information about his manuscript sources, and, perhaps most importantly, some of his scholarly practices in producing his edition of this canonical mathematical text. Another result is that of two versions of this text that can be read in the manuscripts, one can be identified as the more polished draft. 概要 この論考の分析対象は、ナスィール・アッディーン・トゥースィー (Naṣīr al-Dīn al-Ṭūsī) による、エウクレイデス『デドメナ』に対する注釈である。我々はトゥースィーがその著書『エウクレイデス・デドメナ再述』 (Taḥrīr Kitāb al-Muʿṭayāt li-Uqlīdis) のなかで為した注釈および欄外注の校訂英訳注を提示する。分析の結果、トゥースィーが数学的観点から何を重要だと見なしていたのかについて、また現存諸写本の関係についていくつかの新知見が明らかになる。そのなかでおそらく最も重要だと思われるのは、彼がこの数学の重要書に対して行った“書き直し”の具体相である。他にも、現存写本群には2つ系統があること、その一方がより推敲を経たヴァージョンであることが明らかになる。
