  2. Something to Reckon With: The Logic of Terms.George Englebretsen - 1996 - Ottawa, Canada: University of Ottawa Press.
    By delving into the history and development of logic from its beginnings to the modern era, George Englebretsen rehabilitates term logic and demonstrates that an enhanced traditional logic remains a viable possibility. Taking inspiration from Fred Sommers' work, he creates an updated and fascinating version of term logic; one he believes to be just as legitimate as, and in ways superior to, the currently predominant mathematical logic.

    Figuring It Out: Logic Diagrams.George Englebretsen - 2019 - De Gruyter.
    Many systems of logic diagrams have been offered both historically and more recently. Each of them has clear limitations. An original alternative system is offered here. It is simpler, more natural, and more expressively and inferentially powerful. It can be used to analyze not only syllogisms but arguments involving relational terms and unanalyzed statement terms.

  8. Making Sense of Truth-Makers.George Englebretsen - 2010 - Topoi 29 (2):147-151.
    This essay argues that propositions are made true by facts. A proposition is the sense expressed by a statement (sentence token used to make a truth claim). Facts are positive or negative constitutive properties of the domain of discourse (usually the actual world). The presence of horses is a positive constitutive property of the world; the absence of unicorns is a negative one. This notion of constitutive properties accords well with the Hume-Kant claim that existence is not a property of (...)

    This text presents a number of reasons for the reinstatement of a traditional terminist logic, contributing to the ongoing debate concerning the proper connections between formal logic, natural language, artificial reasoning, and mathematics.

    Quine on Aristotle on Identity.George Englebretsen - 1985 - Critica 17 (49):65-68.
    Quine has often expressed his impatience with the fact that "Identity evidently invites confusion between sign and object" He finds the confusion in the works of a great many philosophers. What is most interesting, however, is that he excludes Aristotle from his disapprobation. "On the other hand Aristotle had the matter straight: things are identical when 'whatever is predicated of the one should be predicated of the other'. I believe a closer inspection of Aristotle's views would lead Quine to abandon (...)

    On the Nature of Sommers' Rule.George Englebretsen - 1971 - Mind 80 (320):608-611.
    I argue here that recent discussions of f. sommers' "rule for enforcing ambiguity" have been mistaken on one of two grounds. either they misrepresent the sense of the rule or they misunderstand its intent. the rule is neither a sense rule nor a categorial rule, but a 'translation' rule relating senses of terms to categories of individuals. rather than a test for term ambiguity the rule is a test for theory coherence. finally, i show that there are many possible ways (...)

    Fred Sommers passed away in October of 2014 in his 92nd year. Having begun his teaching at Columbia University, he eventually became the Harry A. Wolfson Chair in Philosophy at Brandeis University, where he taught from 1963 to 1993. During his long and productive career, Sommers authored or co-authored over 50 books, articles, reviews, etc., presenting his ideas on numerous occasions throughout North America and Europe. His work was characterized by a commitment to the preservation and application of historical insights (...)

    Es läßt sich zeigen‚ daß Leibniz' These, singuläre Subjekte könnten in gleicher Weise entweder als partikulär oder universell verstanden werden ‚ eine Folgerung aus zwei anderen Leibnizschen Thesen ist: 1. daß die Wahrheit eines Satzes eine Sache der Enthaltensbeziehung zwischen der Denotation oder Bedeutung seines Subjekt-und Prädikatbegriffs ist, und 2. daß der Begriff des Individuums vollständig ist. Hieraus ergibt sich u. a.‚ daß die These der wilden Quantität verstanden werden kann als integraler Teil von Leibniz' allgemeinem logisch-metaphysischen Programm.

    "This accessibly written book surveys all of the major competing theories of truth before formulating the new defence of the correspondence theory and then exploring the consequences of the theory for issues in epistemology and ontology. The book concludes by showing how the idea of 'propositional depth' can be used to dissolve the Liar paradoxes."--BOOK JACKET.

  36. Exploring Topics in the History and Philosophy of Logic.George Englebretsen - 2015 - De Gruyter.
    Post-Fregean logicians tend to ignore the traditional logic of Aristotle and the Scholastics, while in recent years, following the lead of Fred Sommers, the viability of a renewed logic of terms has been shown. This new term logic surpasses today s standard logic in simplicity and naturalness. The book exhibits how such a logic can shed light on a variety of challenges that face any system of formal logic.".

    Der Aufsatz wendet sich gegen die verbreitete Auffassung, Frege sei der Vater der modernen mathematischen Logik und Leibniz sei sein berühmtester Vorlaufer. Leibniz kann nur in einem sehr allgemeinen Sinne als Vorlaufer der mathematischen Logik in Anspruch genommen werden. Er mufß vielmehr als größter Vertreter der traditionellen Syllogistik bezeichnet werden. Denn Leibniz geht mit der Tradition aus vom kategorischen Satz, in welchem ein Prädikat von einem Subjekt ausgesagt wird. Im Gegensattz dazu legt Frege seiner Logik die Korrelation zwischen Fünktion und (...)

  43. Notes on Quine’s Syntactical Insights.George Englebretsen - 1984 - Grazer Philosophische Studien 22 (1):149-157.
    W.V. Quine has led many logicians in thinking that mathematical logic can offer insights into the syntax of natural language. One example of such an insight is the use of quantifier scope difference to resolve the ambiguity of sentences like ' I don't know every poem'. Such differences also are claimed to be useful in analyzing phrases such as 'the lady I saw you with'. But an older, Aristotelian theory of logical syntax can equally well resolve the ambiguity problem in (...)

    Philosophical Logic: An Introduction to Advanced Topics.George Englebretsen & Charles Sayward - 2010 - continuum.
    This title introduces students to non-classical logic, syllogistic, to quantificational and modal logic. The book includes exercises throughout and a glossary of terms and symbols. Taking students beyond classical mathematical logic, "Philosophical Logic" is a wide-ranging introduction to more advanced topics in the study of philosophical logic. Starting by contrasting familiar classical logic with constructivist or intuitionist logic, the book goes on to offer concise but easy-to-read introductions to such subjects as quantificational and syllogistic logic, modal logic and set theory.

    Les arguments contemporains en faveur de l'asymétrie des sujets et des prédicats prétendent que l'on ne peut nier, conjoindre, et disjoindre que des prédicats. Ces arguments se basent sur une assomption de Frege, à savoir, que des sujets doivent toujours être termes singuliers avec une référence à un objet individuel. Par contraste avec cette position, il y a un plus ancien point de vue qui n'accepte pas une telle assomption. Selon Leibniz, n'importe quels termes, y compris des singuliers, peuvent être (...)
