Riassunto: In this book, Nicholas Rescher seeks to settle debates about whether Galen originated the fourth figure of the categorical syllogism. For his definitive evidence, Rescher examines Arabic sources, one of which is ?On the Fourth Figure of the Syllogism? by twelfth-century mathematician Ibn al-Salah, and is reproduced here in Arabic with an annotated English translation. Rescher also explores the history and importance of the syllogistic figures in the evolution of logic in Islamic and European cultures, and discusses the debate about the actual number of syllogistic figures.
L'autore: Nicholas Rescher is University Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh, and chairman of the Center for Philosophy of Science. He is the author or editor of nearly one hundred books, including Aporetics: Rational Deliberation in the Face of Inconsistency, and Ignorance: (On the Wider Implications of Deficient Knowledge).
