Abstract

An aporia posed by Theophrastus prompts Priscian to describe the process by which perception formally assimilates to its object as a progressive perfection. I present an interpretation of Priscian's account of perception's progressive perfection, and I consider a dilemma for the general class of accounts to which Priscian's belongs based on related problems raised by Plotinus and Aquinas. Doing so reveals the explanatory structure of Priscian's account and the limitations of the general class of accounts to which Priscian's belongs.
