Sample text

It can be proved equivalent to the system of Groenendijk & Stokhof. 28 URS EGLI Excavating the prehistory of dynamic predicate logic in the Stoic theory of methodical arguments makes us aware of an interrupted tradition, in a way that is possible only by philological reconstruction and the use of similar facts independently invented in modern times. That such interrupted traditions can become important has been shown by the use of ancient temporal logic and its resurrection in Kripke's (1963) semantics of modal logic.

Etiam si dico 'homo est animal', ita bene 'animal' supponit sicut 'homo', quod non est sic de suppositione apud grammaticum. Dicto ergo modo capiendo 'significationem' et 'suppositionem', differunt significatio et suppositio quia cujuslibet dictionis quae non materialiter sumpta est pars propositionis interest significare et audienti earn conceptum aliquem constituere secundum institutionem sibi ad placitum datam. Sed non omnis talis dictionis est supponere, quia solus talis terminus est innatus supponere qui aliquo demonstrato per istud pronomen 'hoc' aut aliquibus demonstratis per istud pronomen 'haec' potest vere affirmari de ilIo pronomine.

As a predicate of a universally affirmative sentence - gave rise to what was called merely confused (suppositio confusa tantum) and the mode of common personal supposition of 'animal' in (l0) was called confused and distributive (suppositio confusa et distributiva). Three questions arise naturally: first (a), why that name - what does all that have to do with confusion? (b), what do the two occurrences of 'animal' in (9) and (10) have in common? and (c), would it not be much more natural to say that 'animal' in (9) has that same oddly-called determinate supposition as 'man' has in (8)?
