Excerpt from The Politics of Aristotle, Vol. 2: With an Introduction, Two Prefatory Essays and Notes Critical and Explanatory

The three catalogues will be translation by Steinschneider. Commencement of Die verlorenen Schriften des Aristoteles, p. I7. Heitz, ibid. P. appear in the list of Diogenes]. Did he find them in the source from which he copied his list, or did he add them himself? Or are they a gloss which has crept from the margin of Diogenes into his text? Their meaning is as doubtful as their origin. They may merely mean that the Political Teaching both of Theophrastus and of Aris totle was arranged in eight books: more probably they mean that the work was identical with one which was ascribed to Theophrastus as its author. Cicero some times cites, as from Theophrastus, statements the like of which we find in the Politics; but it does not follow that he may not owe them to Theophrastus, for Theophrastus may well have repeated remarks originally made by'aris totle, and we know that Cicero distinguishes between the works Of Aristotle and Theophrastus on the best con stitutionz, SO that one part of the Politics at all events cannot have been ascribed by him to Theophrastus.
