ANGIONI, LUCAS. ARISTOTLE’S CONTRAST BETWEEN EPISTEME AND DOXA IN ITS CONTEXT (POSTERIOR ANALYTICS I.33). Manuscrito [online]. 2019, vol.42, n.4, pp.157-210.  Epub 25-Nov-2019. ISSN 0100-6045.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0100-6045.2019.v42n4.la.

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.
