The Problems (Greek: Προβλήματα; Latin: Problemata) is an Aristotelian or possibly pseudo-Aristotelian, as its authenticity has been questioned[citation needed], collection of problems written in a question and answer format. The collection, gradually assembled by the peripatetic school, reached its final form anywhere between the third century BC to the 6th century AD. The work is divided by topic into 38 sections, and the whole contains almost 900 problems.

Later writers of Problemata include Plutarch, Alexander of Aphrodisias, and Cassius Iatrosophista.[1]
