Description - Peter of Spain: Summaries of Logic by Brian P. Copenhaver

For nearly four centuries Peter of Spain's Summaries of Logic (c. 1230) was the basis for teaching logic. The Summaries has extensively and profoundly influenced the distinctly Western way of speaking formally and writing formal prose by constructing well-formed sentences, making valid arguments, and refuting and defending arguments in debate. This new English translation, based on an update of the Latin text of Lambertus De Rijk, comes with an
extensive introduction that deals with authorship, dating, and the place of the Summaries in the development of logic, before providing a chapter-by-chapter analysis of Peter's book, followed by an analysis of his system
from the point of view of modern logic. The Latin text is presented on facing pages with the English translation, accompanied by notes, and the book includes a full bibliography.
