ARISTOTELES NA HORE SAINT-MICHEL (VO SVETLE ROVNOMENNEJ PUBLIKÁCIE S. GOUGUENHEIMA)
[Aristotle on Mount Saint-Michel (In Light of S. Gouguenheim´s Publication Bearing the Same Title)]
Abstract: This paper wants to bring to Slovakia the probably unknown controversy about the roots of Christian Europe, which was provoked by the publication (published eight years ago) of the work of the French medievalist and former professor at Sorbonne – and which continues unabated. Did Islam bring Aristotle to Europe, or did the Christian West have its own translators, especially at Mount Saint-Michel near the Atlantic coast of France? S. Gouguenheim´s answer to the first part of the question is negative. Followed by further positive opinions by historians, such as F. Braudel, and philosophers such as Roger-Pol Droit, R. Brague and others, this view is gaining more supporters. To the detriment of the formerly prevailing official opinion, current research also suggests the fact that Averroes himself had no influence within Islam, the Hellenization of which was very limited.
