Cambridge Companion to Medieval Logic

It’s been I-don’t-know-how-many-years in the making, but the fruits of Stephen Read and Catarina Dutilh Novaes’s work is now available: The Cambridge Companion to Medieval Logic.

The book is divided into two parts. The first part is temporally organized, focusing on periods and traditions. The chapters in this section cover:

  • The Legacy of Ancient Logic in the Middle Ages (by Julie Brumberg-Chaumont)
  • Arabic Logic Up to Avicenna (by Ahmad Hasnawi and Wilfrid Hodges)
  • Arabic Logic After Avicenna (by Khaled El-Rouayheb)
  • Latin Logic Up to 1200 (by Ian Wilks)
  • Logic in the Latin Thirteenth Century (by Sara L. Uckelman and Henrik Lagerlund)
  • Logic in the Latin West in the Fourteenth Century (by Stephen Read)
  • The Post-Medieval Period (by E. Jennifer Ashworth)

The second part is organized thematically, tracing a single concept or topic across time. The topics covered are:

  • Logica Vetus (by Margaret Cameron)
  • Supposition and Properties of Terms (by Christoph Kann)
  • Propositions: Their Meaning and Truth (by Laurent Cesalli)
  • Sophisms and Insolubles (by Mikko Yrjönsuuri and Elizabeth Coppock
