Syncategoremata

Syncategoremata

Henrico de Ganavo adscripta
Edited by H. A. G. Braakhuis, Girard J. Etzkorn, Gordon Wilson
Ancient and Medieval Philosophy—Series 2, No. 37

The Stadsbibliotheek of Brugge houses a manuscript (ms. 510, f. 227ra-237vb) that holds a short logical text on the Syncategoremata. In this manuscript the text is ascribed to Henry of Ghent, who was a leading thinker of the second half of the thirteenth century. If Henry wrote the text, he had much more technical knowledge of logic and semantics than is often imagined. The text was influenced by the logical works of Peter of Spain.
