Wehrli has suggested, 2 the very nature of the texts joined to the difficulty of the message which they contain was perhaps the principal cause of what one must call the decadence of the Peripatos during the Hellenistic period. For no Greek text has preserved the latter for us.

The Corpus Aristotelicum is the collection of Immanuel Bekker's nineteenth-century edition, which in turn is based on ancient classifications of these works. The extant works of Aristotle are broken down according to the five categories in the Corpus Aristotelicum.
Not all of these works are considered genuine, but differ with respect to their connection to Aristotle, his associates and his views. Some are regarded by most scholars as products of Aristotle's "school" and compiled under his direction or supervision.
The Constitution of Athens , the only major modern addition to the Corpus Aristotelicum, has also been so regarded. Other works, such as On Colors may have been products of Aristotle's successors at the Lyceum, e. Still others acquired Aristotle's name through similarities in doctrine or content, such as the De Plantis, possibly by Nicolaus of Damascus. A final category, omitted here, includes medieval palmistries , astrological and magical texts whose connection to Aristotle is purely fanciful and self-promotional.
In several of the treatises, there are references to other works in the corpus. Based on such references, some scholars have suggested a possible chronological order for a number of Aristotle's writings.
According to House , The Poetics , is an esoteric work in this sense. Bekker numbers , the standard form of reference to works in the Corpus Aristotelicum, are based on the page numbers used in the Prussian Academy of Sciences edition of the complete works of Aristotle Aristotelis Opera edidit Academia Regia Borussica , Berlin, — They take their name from the editor of that edition, the classical philologist August Immanuel Bekker — The following list is complete.
The titles are given in accordance with the standard set by the Revised Oxford Translation. The standard reference to it is by section and subsection numbers. Surviving fragments of the many lost works of Aristotle were included in the fifth volume of Bekker's edition, edited by Valentin Rose.
These are not cited by Bekker numbers, however, but according to fragment numbers. Rose's first edition of the fragments of Aristotle was Aristoteles Pseudepigraphus As the title suggests, Rose considered these all to be spurious. The numeration of the fragments in a revised edition by Rose, published in the Teubner series, Aristotelis qui ferebantur librorum fragmenta , Leipzig, , is still commonly used indicated by R 3 , although there is a more current edition with a different numeration by Olof Gigon published in as a new vol.
For a selection of the fragments in English translation, see W. The possibly spurious work, On Ideas survives in quotations by Alexander of Aphrodisias in his commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics.

According to legend, while the infant Plato was sleeping in a bower of myrtles on Mount Hymettus, bees settled upon his lips, auguring the honeyed words that would one day flow through his mouth. This may come as a surprise to modern readers of Aristotle, whose treatises often seem heavily technical, poorly written, and badly organised — and yet it is difficult to doubt the judgement of a man like Cicero. One can only assume that Cicero had before him works that have since been lost, such as the dialogues that Aristotle is known to have written earlier on in his career, probably while still at the Academy. They were probably lecture notes or student texts, and were almost certainly repeatedly reworked over a period of several years. Although their prose is unembellished, this does not usually detract from their philosophical content, and some scholars even come to admire them for their candour and for their clarity.
Oh no, there's been an error
The Corpus Aristotelicum is the collection of Aristotle 's works that have survived from antiquity through medieval manuscript transmission. These texts, as opposed to Aristotle's works that were lost or intentionally destroyed, are technical philosophical treatises from within Aristotle's school. Reference to them is made according to the organization of Immanuel Bekker 's nineteenth-century edition, which in turn is based on ancient classifications of these works. The extant works of Aristotle are broken down according to the five categories in the Corpus Aristotelicum. Not all of these works are considered genuine, but differ with respect to their connection to Aristotle, his associates and his views. Some are regarded by most scholars as products of Aristotle's "school" and compiled under his direction or supervision. The Constitution of the Athenians , the only major modern addition to the Corpus Aristotelicum, has also been so regarded.
