Aristotle - index for METAPHYSICA Book 4 Part 6

Concluding the discussion of contradictory beliefs

  
Paragraph 1 There are, both among those who have these convictions and among those who merely profess these views, some who raise a difficulty by asking, who is to be the judge of the healthy man, and in general who is likely to judge rightly on each class of questions.
Paragraph 2 These, then, might be easily persuaded of this truth, for it is not difficult to grasp;
Paragraph 3 Let this, then, suffice to show (1) that the most indisputable of all beliefs is that contradictory statements are not at the same time true, and (2) what consequences follow from the assertion that they are, and (3) why people do assert this.
