By Desmond Paul Henry

The motive of the current paintings is mainly the presentation of a working statement, preponderantly historic in complexion, at the element of the textual content of St. Anselm's discussion De Grammatico. whilst the making intelligible of that textual content has demanded the concurrent proffering of logical elucidations. The framework followed for the latter is the Ontology of S. Lesniewski. The unsuitability of alternative present platforms of good judgment for the research of medieval doctrines has been urged in HLM I. Hereunder the road of analyses proposed in HDG (an introduc­ tory examine of De Grammatico) will for the main half be maintained, with just a couple of ameliorations. adjustments which additional research may call for may at least contain now not loads an abrogation of the HDG ver­ sions, yet fairly sure issues of aspect at the traces indicated in HLM, HEE, and Hoi. Readers who ensue to be out of sympathy both with modem good judgment as a complete, or with the Lesniewskian platforms particularly, will be guaranteed that the ancient thread of the observation continues to be for the main half unaffected through matters hooked up with such logics. a lot of the ancient fabric inside the statement includes quotations from the logical works of Boethius. a few of that fabric could at the start sight look prosaic and tedious.
