Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses some examples of what could be regarded as the non-historical medieval approach to Aristotle. It seems that the authors assumed that logic is what it is and were inclined to argue that, when they believed they understood the logical question Aristotle dealt with, this was what Aristotle said or meant to say. The chapter presents some contemporary interpretations of medieval modal logic which are much more aware of interpretational conditions. After some examples of how to see the relationship between historical texts and interpretative terms, the author discusses the difference between the rational reconstruction of what historical authors did say and the formal construction of what they might or should have said.

Keywords:Aristotle; non-historical medieval approach
