Averroes' Middle Commentary on Aristotle's Rhetoric: An Arabic-English Translation

This project aims to make available to English-speaking scholars and students of rhetoric an Arabic-English translation of the Middle Commentary of Averroes on Aristotle's treatise on rhetoric. Averroes (1126-1198) is considered in the Arabic-Islamic philosophical tradition as well as in the Western philosophical tradition as the "Commentator" on the logical works of Aristotle. The English translation of this important commentary will significantly contribute to the history and theory of rhetoric, a discipline that has shaped the Western rhetorical tradition for over twenty-five hundred years. Once this project is completed, I plan to submit it to a university press to be considered for publication.
