1 Concerning an argument of Physics VI, Glasner quotes Averroes' words: “We, as well as others, thought for a long time about what Ibn Bâjja argued and approved of what he said, considering it to be the most satisfactory. But a certain objection occurred to me… (p. 60, translating from Kalonymos, MC, MS Hamburg hebr. 267, f. 772b 14–17).”
