The project began in 1987 and in 2012 published its 100th volume. A further 30 or so volumes are planned.

Simplicius records attacks on Aristotle's claim that time requires change, or consciousness. He reports a rebuttal of the Pythagorean theory that history will repeat itself exactly. He evaluates Aristotle's treatment of Zeno's paradox concerning place.

On Aristotle's Physics . -5, 10-14 book. In his last five chapters, Aristotle argues that if time did not entail change its passage would be undetectable, and that time, by definition countable, requires the existence of conscious beings to do the counting. J. O. Urmson's translation serves as a companion to his earlier translation of the Corollaries on Place and Time, in which Simplicius sets forth his own views as distinct from those of Aristotle.

Unlike Simplicius, Philoponus doesn’t quote from the presocratics so I presume he relies on secondary material. I’m not sure why book 1 was divided into two volumes as neither is particularly long. I find Philoponus’s train of thought difficult to follow at times and this book was nowhere as interesting as I thought it was going to be. It is a good example of scholarship from Late Antiquity.
