Rare first edition of this collection of Aristotelian disputations publicly discussed by the philosopher and physician from Viterbo Camillo Cocchi, about whose life very little is known. The problemata are in total 405 and are grouped according to the ancient god or semi-god to which each of them is more closely connected to, starting with Jupiter and ending with the Muses. At the end is a sort of disclaimer (Admonitio Lectori), in which the author justifies himself for the possible references to believes and theories that go against the Christian faith.
