Being Opposite. On the translation of antikeimena in Aristotle's De anima

Abstract

The main concern of this article is the interpretation of De Anima II.4 415a14-23, and the particular way by which it is generally translated by modern editors. Almost all modern translations adopt the two locutions - \emph{objects} and \emph{correlative objects} - to translate the Greek word \antikeimena. But this choice is not neutral, nor it is without consequences for the understanding of the text.
