Introduction to medieval logic by Alexander Broadie( Book )

36 editions published between 1987 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medieval logicians advanced far beyond the logic of Aristotle and the aim of this book is to show how far that advance took them in two central areas. Alexander Broadie focuses upon the work of some of the great figures of the fourteenth century, including Walter Burley, William Ockham, John Buridan, Albert of Saxony, and Paul of Venice, and deals with their theories of truth, conditions and validity conditions. He reveals how much of what seems characteristically twentieth-century logica was familiar long ago. Professor Broadie has extensively revised his text for this second edition, while p

"This book, written for the general reader, considers the achievement of this most astonishing period of Scottish history.

The shadow of Scotus : philosophy and faith in pre-reformation Scotland by Alexander Broadie( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unique study of Pre-Reformation Scottish philosophers and philosophy. The greatest of the philosophers was John Duns Scotus, but there were others such as John Ireland, John Mair of Haddington and George Lokert of Ayr. Focusing on the concepts of will, intellect and faith, Professor Broadie investigates the philosophy of these men and the relationships between their ideas. He places them within the framework of the medieval dispute between nominalists and realists which so characterised philosophy and theology in the Middle Ages. Scotus' account of the primacy of will over intellect was demonstrably influenced by his Franciscan inheritance. Will is the faculty of freedom. However, how can our acts be free if God has known from eternity that we will perform them? This question is examined in relation to John Ireland's major theological work, The Mirror of Wisdom. Professor Broadie analyses the concept of faith as presented by John Mair and his Scottish contemporaries, and their doctrine that giving assent as an act of faith involves two stages, an act of intellect by which hesitant assent is given, and an act of free will by which hesitancy is replaced by certainty

14 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Reid on logic, rhetoric, and the fine arts : papers on the culture of the mind by Thomas Reid( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Reid saw the three subjects of logic, rhetoric, and the fine arts as closely cohering aspects of one endeavor that he called the culture of the mind. This was a topic on which Reid lectured for many years in Glasgow, and this volume presents as near a reconstruction of these lectures as is now possible." "In addition, this volume continues the attractive combination of manuscript material and published work, in this case Reid's important and well-known essay on Aristotle's logic. This text was corrupted in earlier editions of Reid's works and is now restored to the state in which Reid left it."--Jacket
George Lokert, late-scholastic logician by Alexander Broadie( Book )

Scottish philosophy in the seventeenth century by Alexander Broadie( )

8 editions published in 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the seventeenth century Scots produced many high quality philosophical writings, writings that were very much part of a wider European philosophical discourse. Yet today Scottish philosophy of the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries is widely studied, but that of the seventeenth century is only now beginning to receive the attention it deserves. This volume begins by placing the seventeenth-century Scottish philosophy in its political and religious contexts,0and then investigates the writings of the philosophers in the areas of logic, metaphysics, politics, ethics, law, and religion. It is demonstrated that in a variety of ways the Scottish Reformation impacted on the teaching of philosophy in the Scottish universities. It is also shown that until the second half of the century-and the arrival of Descartes on the Scottish philosophy curriculum-the Scots were teaching and developing a form of Reformed orthodox scholastic philosophy, a philosophy that shared many features with the scholastic Catholic philosophy of the medieval period. By the early eighteenth century Scotland was well placed to give rise to the spectacular Enlightenment that then followed, and to do so in large measure on the basis of its own well-established intellectual resources. Among the many thinkers discussed are Reformed orthodox, Episcopalian, and Catholics philosophers including George Robertson, George Middleton, John Boyd, Robert Baron, Mark Duncan, Samuel Rutherford, James Dundas (first Lord Arniston), George Mackenzie, James Dalrymple (Viscount Stair), and William Chalmers."--
