Sažetak:
Aristotle had a developed theory of animal motion with an elaborate physiological component. In this paper we present the physiological component in which the main role is assigned to structures called neura which operate on bones. We demonstrate that neura exclude muscles and we propose an explanation for Aristotle’s curious neglect of muscles in his physiology of animal motion. Also, we try to identify the main neura specified by Aristotle, we show that he conceived of their operation on bones in much the same way as we conceive of the operation of muscles, and we point out the main difficulties for his account.
