La structure du Contre Galien de Fārābī et son épître sur la médecine

Abstract : Al-Radd ʿalà Ǧālīnūs is the only work of al-Fārābī entirely dedicated to his philosophical biology. The text as we know it today is composed of three independent epistles to which a fourth text should be added — his epistle on medicine — the content of which stems from various extracts from Ǧālīnūs. This article, which we hope to be a first step in our project of a new commented edition of Ǧālīnūs, aims at a better understanding of how this network of texts works as well as the history of its constitution, based on the structure of these texts, their ancient testimonies and on what the codices that contain them can reveal to us. Moreover, the study of the Risāla fī al-Ṭibb, of which we present a new edition, allows us to reflect upon the way the manuscript transmission has enabled the creation of new works out of the original works written by classical Arabo-Islamic philosophers.
