Editorial Reviews


"All medievalists should applaud the excellent work of Pasnau in providing a fine collection of translations that make late medieval writings on philosophy of mind and epistemology accessible to twenty-first-century students and scholars. This volume offers us all ample evidence of the great strides made by the philosophers and theologians of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries in the development of what we now know as 'cognitive science.'" Philosophy in Review

By Jordan Bell on June 26, 2016
Format: Paperback
This is a collection of good translations of extended passages from various medieval Latin works on logic. I came to this to get a feeling for the common stock of structures and problems in logic that might be assumed in William Heytesbury's "Regulae"; I am interested in the "Regulae" itself because it is one of the principal mid 14th century works (among works by other Oxford scholars and Oresme in Paris) on the infinite and kinematics. This collection includes another work of Heytesbury, "The Compounded and Divided Senses", which includes sophisms involving time like "Immediate after this there will be some instant; therefore, some instant will be immediately after this."

I was glad to come across the anonymous "Syncategoremata Monacenia". It is short and competent, and it doesn't meander like so many medieval Latin works do. Like other discussions of sophisms, it presents confusing or apparently true and false sentences, and categorizes the different ways these sentences can be interpreted, and thus rather than the sentence being both true and false, it is true in one precisely explained sense and false in one precisely explained sense, and gives general rules for interpreting sophistic sentences.
