Title: Aristotle's contrast between episteme and doxa in its context (posterior analytics i.33)
Author: Angioni, Lucas
Abstract: Aristotle contrasts episteme and doxa through the key notions of universal and necessary. These notions have played a central role in Aristotle's characterization of scientific knowledge in the previous chapters of APo. They are not spelled out in APo I.33, but work as a sort of reminder that packs an adequate characterization of scientific knowledge and thereby gives a highly specified context for Aristotle's contrast between episteme and doxa. I will try to show that this context introduces a contrast in terms of explanatory claims: on the one hand, episteme covers those claims which capture explanatory connections that are universal and necessary and thereby deliver scientific understanding; on the other hand, doxa covers the explanatory attempts that fail at doing so
