    Aristotle defines a noun, verb, simple proposition, affirmation vs. denial (and the rest by conjunction, i.e. joining of propositions). Logically, every affirmation has a denial (these are either full contraries of universals or contradictories). He references the sophists and hints that they tend to use weak versions of denials to make their unclear points.

    Brilliant work and excellent translation. As the translator remarks it would seem more accurate to have translated the Greek name of Aristotle’s work as “On the Enunciation”, because it has little to do with what we consider interpretation and everything to do with understanding the truth, falsity, and the logic behind enunciations (in the sense of statements made affirming or denying something). The bonus here is additional material related to metaphysics, because for Aristotle and Aquinas logic Brilliant work and excellent translation.

The bonus here is additional material related to metaphysics, because for Aristotle and Aquinas logic flows naturally from metaphysics. It is not simply rules of argument or thought; it is dependent upon Being and the nature of the world as it really is. You must pay attention when reading the book, but it is worth the investment.

    Clear! Concise! St. Thomas Aquinas is a genius in clarifying Aristotle. The translation is also good, but is better in the Thomas commentary parts than the original Aristotle to English.
