Mechanics Aristotle

Mechanics (or Mechanica or Mechanical Problems; Greek: ) is a text traditionally attributed to Aristotle, though his authorship of it is disputed. Thomas Winter has suggested that the author was Archytas.[1] However, Coxhead says that it is only possible to conclude that the author was one of the Peripatetics.[2]

During the Renaissance, an edition of this work was published by Francesco Maurolico.
