It is amazing that someone who lived in the Classical Greek world wrote something down, and that, despite his words being abraded off to use as parchment for medieval writing, the text still exists! Apparently, philosophers are going over the commentary on Aristotle here (requires Windows Media Player so Mac folks like me are SOL). Hyperides wrote about Aristotle's taxonomy and classification of animals, so there may be important contributions not only for philosophers of science, but also for those interested in the rhetoric of science and nature. Stay tuned!
Not always theoretical... not even always academic.. but always written..
