Chapter Summary

The specific subject of logic, a clear definition of its objectives and main concepts, that had to have an impact on other branches of philosophy, and then on other disciplines, deserves a more detailed treatment. Throughout the history of Islam, and especially in Arab history, a lot of attention was paid to the classification of disciplines. These classifications were done on the basis of very different criteria, such as: domestic - foreign; theoretical - practical; religious - nonreligious; traditional - rational; appreciative - damaging, etc. This chapter deals only with those classifications that were present by the mid-16th century, left the deepest impact, and were present in various writings preceding the works by Bosniac logicians, and only with those parts of classifications that point out the place, role and relation that logic had to other disciplines, as observed from within the system itself.

Keywords: Arab history; Bosniac logicians; Islam; philosophy
