Logic, Ancient

  • The Discovery of Chinese Logicby Joachim Kurtz

    BRILL 2011; US$ 221.00

    This book analyzes the discovery of Chinese logic as a paradigmatic case of the epistemic shifts that have shaped interpretations of China?s intellectual heritage.

  • The Force of Argumentby Jonathan Lear; Alex Oliver

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 54.95

    Timothy Smiley has made ground-breaking contributions to modal logic, free logic, multiple-conclusion logic, and plural logic; he has illuminated Aristotle?s syllogistic, the ideas of logical form and consequence, and the distinction between assertion and rejection; and his debunking work on the theory of descriptions is a tour de force. In this volume,... more...

  • Formalizing Medieval Logical Theoriesby Catarina Dutilh Novaes

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 269.00

    Perhaps one of the most striking characteristics of later medieval philosophy and science is the remarkable unity with which the different fields of investigation were articulated to each other, in particular with respect to the methodology used. While it is fair to say that current science is characterized by a plurality of methodologies and by a... more...

  • Inference from Signsby James Allen

    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 47.99

    James Allen presents an original and penetrating investigation of the notion of inference from signs, which played a central role in ancient philosophical and scientific method. Allen masters a broad range of ancient texts, discussing Aristotle, the Sceptics, the Stoics, and the Epicureans, to provide the first comprehensive treatment of his topic.... more...

  • Logic and How it Gets That Wayby Dale Jacquette

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    In this challenging and provocative analysis, Dale Jacquette argues that contemporary philosophy labours under a number of historically inherited delusions about the nature of logic and the philosophical significance of certain formal properties of specific types of logical constructions. Exposing some of the key misconceptions about formal symbolic... more...

  • The Many Roots of Medieval Logicby

    BRILL 2007; US$ 95.00

    The specialized essays in this collection study whether non-Aristotelian traditions of ancient logic had a role for medieval logicians. Special attention is given to Stoic logic and semantics, and to Neoplatonism. more...

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    ?This edited collection discusses phenomenological critiques of formalism and their relevance to the problem of responsibility and the life-world.

  • Schlußfolgerungslehre in Erfurter Schulen des 14. Jahrhundertsby Rainer Grass

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2003; US$ 188.00

    As the title indicates the author presents a contemporary theory of consequence.

In the interest of better understanding the medieval writers the author puts himself in the position of the medieval... more...
