Names and Predicables

  • Peter Thomas Geach
Part of the Synthese Library book series (SYLI, volume 119)


If we are concentrating on the logic of predication, we shall easily come to the conclusion that this part of the history of logic is largely a story of error. For Aristotle, the ancestor of all logicians, began the development of this thought by formulating some masterly insights, but later rejected these insights and took a wrong direction. The consequences of his mistake were almost as fatal for his successors as the consequences of the first sin were for the heirs of Adam.
