Chapter Summary

With any thinker one can expect a certain development over time, corrections of original positions which no longer seem valid, or refinements of earlier considerations in the light of new information, but Ramon Llull's case is altogether exceptional. Not only did his system go through various quite different stages, but within each stage he was continually trying out new tactics. To attempt an overview of the various stages of Llull's system, however, we must simplify to a certain extent. Perhaps the best way to do so is to chart the course of his development in terms of the titles of four key works, and what those titles would have implied and what Llull surely intended them to imply to his contemporaries. They are: (i) Ars compendiosa inveniendi veritatem (ACIV ); (ii) Ars demonstrativa (AD); (iii) Ars generalis ultima (AGU ); and (iv) Logica nova (LN).

Keywords: Ars compendiosa inveniendi veritatem (ACIV ); Ars demonstrativa (AD); Ars generalis ultima (AGU ); Logica nova (LN); Ramon Llull
