Chapter Summary

Gerald Odonis' logic is generous in its acceptance of ontological counterparts of linguistic expressions. He claims that universals have an objective status and are independent of our mental operations. This article takes a closer look at his views on the meaning of what he calls esse tertio adiacens, i.e., the type of being expressed in propositions of the form 'S is P'. It turns out that Odonis' account is more in line with John Duns Scotus' intensionalist theory of propositional composition. In this paper the author shall further explore Odonis' commitment to an extramental foundation of logic by looking at his analysis of what he calls esse tertio adiacens in the Logica. The author also compares his ideas with those of some of his predecessors, in whose accounts of propositions the notion of 'union' or 'composition' plays a crucial role.

Keywords: esse tertio adiacens; Gerald Odonis; John Duns Scotus
