Show Summary Details


This chapter deals with medieval logic from the time when it first had full resources for systematic creative contributions onward. It focuses on the era when the ancient heritage was available and medieval logic was able to add something substantial to it, even to surpass it in some respects. The chapter explains that characterization such as this cannot be adequately expressed with years or by conventional period denominations; however, it is hoped that the grounds for drawing boundaries will become clearer during the course of the story.

Keywords: logic; Middle Ages; terms; propositions; inference

Chapter.  32528 words.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Philosophy of Mathematics and Logic
