Albert of Saxony's View of Complex Terms in Categorical Propositions and the ‘English-Rule’
The essay first makes some observations on the general interrelationship between the logical writings of Albert and Buridan. Second, it gives an account of a ‘semantic logical model’ (S-L) for analyzing complex subject terms in some basic categorical propositions which is defended by Albert of Saxony, and briefly recounts Buridan's criticisms of that model. Finally, the essay maintains that the Albertian (S-L) model is typically compatible with, and a further development of, what is called by a late-fourteenth century anonymous scholar ‘the English-Rule’ but the ‘determinable/determinate’ grammatical model defended by Buridan is not.
