Abstract

Garlandus is the author of a Dialectica, probably written late in the eleventh century or at the turn of the twelfth. The treatise covers the whole of the Aristotelian–Boethian curriculum. It is remarkable for its consistency in treating logic as a discipline concerned with language, rather than things in the world. In this respect, it has strong affinities with what appear to have been the views of Roscelin of Compiègne.
