Our aim is to analyse two dimensions of the model of demonstrative science that Aristotle develops in the Posterior Analytics. We shall approach those dimensions in two separate, though interconnected, lines of inquiry. In one of them, we intend to set out the connection between the syllogistic structure of Aristotle's model and some of his views on causation. In the other, we shall study the several kinds of per se predication, as Aristotle defines them in the Posterior Analytics, in order to understand how exactly the scientific explanation found in a demonstration is supposed to be essence-based.
