On the Purity of the Art of Logic

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a treatise on the purity of the art of logic. The aim of this treatise was that young people who were to find themselves arguing about any problem could be trained to deal with it and could quickly dispose of it. The little book contains four parts: in the first part, certain general rules are set out to be used in what follows; the second part deals briefly and succinctly with certain points about the sophistical art, the third part looks at the art of training students, and the fourth part is about demonstrative art. This shorter treatise is concerned with a certain distinction: that one kind of inference is simple, and another kind is “as of now.”

Keywords:   treatise, art of logic, sophistical art, art of training, demonstrative art
