Historically, medieval logic is divided into the old logic (logica vetus), the tradition stretching from Boethius (c. –) until Abelard (–), and the new logic (logica nova), from the late twelfth century until the Renaissance. The division reflects the availability of ancient logical texts. Medieval logicians advanced far beyond the logic of Aristotle and the aim of this book is to show how far that advance took them in two central areas. This book focuses upon the work of some of the great figures of the 14th 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 Author: Alexander Broadie.

To say that medieval logic was systematic is not, of course, to say that it was constructed like a modern quasi-axiomatic system. There are no axioms and theorems, no formation rules and the like. Medieval logics were generally presented in the form of lists of rules of inference, often with little or no apparent heed for economy.
of the history of logic, must still remain over-theoretical and insuﬃciently histor-ical. What is most needed to illuminate the broadly human importance of the subject in this period (and in the twelfth to sixteenth centuries) is a social history of medieval logic, a type of study that has never until now been envisaged, let alone attempted.

These headings, though often given in a different order. While for a long time the study of medieval logic focused on editorial projects and reconstructions of central medieval doctrines such as the theories of signification, supposition, consequences, and obligations, nowadays the spectrum of analysis has broadened and is increasingly informed by modern logical research, whose perspective is then applied to medieval logic. Medieval Logic. Albert of Saxony, Quaestiones Circa Logicam: Twenty-Five Disputed Questions on Logic by Michael J. Fitzgerald (Dallas Medieval Texts and Translations: Peeters Publishers) This translation of Albert of Saxony's Twenty-five Disputed Questions on Logic brings to English readers an important fourteenth-century logician's contribution to the analytic core issues in philosophy.
