This volume contains eleven essays with an introduction by James Bogen. Bogen's essay is a fine overall presentation of the issues that the papers encompass, all of which arose out of a working conference on predication and the history of philosophy and science at Pitzer College in 1981. The first five essays have as their primary focus the logical theories of Plato and Aristotle. The next two essays are respectively on Ockham and Buridan with the two following on Leibniz. The collection concludes with an essay by Wilfrid Sellars on his own theory of predication and an appendix on "The Third Man Argument" by Alan Code. This work thus provides a fairly well-rounded presentation of the basic logical issues that have concerned several major philosophers from ancient times through the medieval period to the present.
