Logic and Ontology in the Syllogistic of Robert Kilwardby [Book Review]

Journal of the History of Philosophy 46 (3):pp. 482-483 (2008)
This book will be of interest to advanced students in philosophy, historians of logic and medieval philosophy, as well as logicians who wish to understand the significant contribution that Robert Kilwardby's thirteenth-century commentary on Aristotle's Prior Analytics made to those fields.

Helpful summaries remind the reader of the important formal and ontological results of each chapter.
