Chapter Summary

As undoubtedly written by Thomas Manlevelt, Lorenz classies the small tracts on terminist logic, the parva logicalia, that have earned him a place in modern handbooks on medieval logic. The most extensive discussion of Manlevelt's life is in Lorenz's aforementioned 1996 paper, 'Thomas Manlefelt (Maulefelt), Zu Leben und Werk' and this is the paper that provides us with the framework of Manlevelt's biography. The spread of Manlevelt's logical writings all over Europe could not have taken place if not from a centre of philosophical authority. The dating of Manlevelt's work is less straightforward. His treatise on supposition is dated by Courtenay somewhere before 1360. The English treatises and textbooks in logic produced in the second and third quarters of the fourteenth century at Oxford, Courtenay explains, provided more than just so many introductions to the various areas of the logica moderna.

Keywords: Lorenz; parva logicalia; Robert Andrews; Thomas Manlevelt
