Summary/Abstract: Aristotle’s philosophical heritage had a significant influence on the grasps of the concept of form in the Western Medieval philosophy. A very important role in this process played the medieval translating of Aristotle’s works in Latin. This paper presents the results of a research on the way three Aristotle’s terms connected with the concept of form – εἶδος, μορφή and σχῆμα – are communicated in the Latin translations of four of his works that deal significantly with the matter: Categories, Topics, Physics, and Metaphysics.
