Sample text

If the consequent of a conditional is denied, the antecedent is also denied. 2R (17) and (18) apparently correspond to these logical laws: (17') (18') [(p [(p ~ ~ q) /\ (r q) /\ (q ~ ~ p)] r)] ~ ~ (r ~ q) (p ~ r); and (19) is the rule for modus tollens. This section also contains a number of what seem to be substitution rules, of which this is typical: (20) If a categorical proposition implies a conditional proposi- tion, then if something implies that categorical and something else implies the antecedent of the conditional, these latter two can be put in the place of those in the consequence.

The presentation of these rules and their examples concludes the treatise's examination of Topics. INTRODUCTIONES DIALECTICE SECUNDUM WILGELMUM Of the two treatises associated with the school of William of Champeaux,19 the second, according to De Rijk, is a reportatio of a school disputation. It contains only a fragment of a discussion of Topics, which is hard to evaluate just because both the beginning and the end of the discussion are missing. The first treatise, however, which De Rijk calls Introductiones dialectice secundum Wi/gelmum (IdW), contains a very full consideration of Topics.

(,1 See De Rijk 1985. 62 For this opposition (which also concerns the basic difference between Aristotelian and Platonic metaphysics), see De Rijk 1970, pp. 11-21 and 1981, pp. 32-35. 1 I am afraid SR's translation is sheer nonsense: "merely to be something and to be something absolutely are different".
