Introduction To Medieval Logic

Introduction To Medieval Logic

Medieval logicians advanced far beyond the logic of Aristotle, and this book shows how far that advance took them in two central areas. Broadie focuses upon the work of some of the great figures of the fourteenth century, including Walter Burley, William Ockham, John Buridan, Albert of Saxony, and Paul of Venice, and deals with their theories of truth conditions and validity conditions. He reveals how much of what seems characteristically twentieth-century logic was familiar long ago. Broadie has extensively revised his text for this second edition, while preserving the character of the first. There are now fuller accounts of supposition, of intentional contexts, and of medieval syllogistic, and the conclusion has been substantially expanded.ReviewFrom the reviews of the first edition: "An excellent introduction to, and handbook of, medieval logic....Fills a need met by nothing else written to date....For many it might make medieval logic interesting for the first time as a source of genuine logical insight."--International Studies inPhilosophy"Informed, intelligent, and clearly written....The selection of topics is judicious, and the presentation well organized....In short, if you have been wondering what medieval logic is all about, this is an excellent book to begin with."--Philosophical Review"A well-written and informative account of the late-medieval doctrines that were relevant in early-sixteenth-century logic. Broadie shows that they are of great philosophical value."--SpeculumAbout the AuthorAlexander Broadie is a Professor in Philosophy at University of Glasgow.
