Chapter Summary

Logic in Arabic, first mentioned in the writings of Bosniac authors in the second half of the 16th century, is an outcome of several centuries of development. This chapter reviews the development of Arabic logic and presents the main flows, directions and names important for the development of logic in the Arabic Islamic world. Focus is on primary sources (authors and their writings) that Bosniac authors quote and on the presentation of the link that the Bosniac authors had with the great names of Arabic logic, and, through them, the writings of Aristotle. The first stage of Arabic logic, or its ?first century?, as named by N. Rescher, is characteristic for intensive translation activities that were of critical importance for the development, not only of logic, but also of philosophy in general and other classical disciplines.

Keywords: 16th century; Aristotle; Bosniac authors; development of Arabic logic; philosophy
