HELLENISTIC PYTHAGOREAN EPISTEMOLOGY
AbstractThe paper offers a running commentary on ps-Archytas’ On Intellect and Sense Perception, with the aim to provide a clear description of Hellenistic/post-Hellenistic Pythagorean epistemology. Through an analysis of the process of knowledge and of the faculties that this involves, ps-Archytas presents an original epistemological theory which, although grounded in Aristotelian and Platonic theories, results in a peculiar Pythagorean criteriology that accounts for the acquisition and production of knowledge, as well as for the specific competences of each cognitive faculty.
