This chapter focus on John Duns Scotus's writings about logic. It explains that his Lectura and the Ordinatio contain many analytical and conceptual praenotanda, or introductions, which serve as preliminary analyses for logical investigations. The chapter discusses a series of topics important for understanding Scotus's way of analysing systematic issues once the way has been cleared with some introductory remarks on the significance of his logical writings. These include the problem of meaning and the problem of knowledge, logical impossibility and elements of the theory relation.
