Abstract

The first part of this paper is dedicated to the publication of a Latin letter of Elia del Medigo to Giovanni Pico della Mirandola, about 1483, concerning the discovery of the function of the nerves in the work of Aristotle and in the comment of Averroes, highlighting a polemic of the “averroist” Elia precisely against his “teacher” Averroes. The second part of this essay reports a summary of the Arabic philosophical novel, the Epistle of Hayy Ibn Yaqzan, of Abu Bakr Ibn Tufayl, published in Milan in 1507 and included in the work of natural philosophy and theology of Pietro Monti, a friend of Leonardo da Vinci.
