Examines the role played by the Aristotelian logic in Neoplatonic philosophers. To start with, it is remarked that Aristotelian Organon was regarded not only as a corpus of logical texts but also as an introduction to philosophy. Focuses on several Neoplatonic Aristotelian commentators, from Alexander of Aphrodisias to Byzantine thinkers, presenting both the characteristics of their works and their lack of interest in discussing their own philosophical view. Finally, it is observed that, although not original, these commentaries provide a rather reliable and correct investigation of Aristotle.

Keywords:   Alexander of Aphrodisias, Ammonius, Aristotelian commentaries, Dexippus, logic, logic form, Philoponus, Porphyry, Simplicius, Themistius
