Example text

86; 284, n. 111; 413. —As a matter of fact, the parallelism postulate of Ancient and Medieval thought—which indeed betrays a conspicuous optimism in matters of cognition—prevented any form of radical subjectivism or scepticism coming up, and any kind of ‘Bewusztseinsphilosophie’ as well. ; 403–416; 572–593 (categorization). Kurt Flasch has argued (Flasch 1972, 1978 and 1984), that there are some remarkable aspects in later Medieval thought, which, on the face of it, indeed seem to come rather close to something like the notion of the 26 chapter one In this general line of thought, two features of the diverse Medieval conceptions of intention deserve special attention.

26 For a thorough discussion see Weidemann (1994), 134–151, and de Rijk (2002) I, 192 f. and 20–23. All the following translations of Aristotle are mine. 27 The usual interpretation ‘thoughts’, however comprehensible in itself, given the apophantic context of De interpretatione, is rather unfortunate though, because, unlike the Greek pathêmata tês psychês (Latin passiones animae), this rendering in advance seems to rule out sensorial affections of the soul. 28 For the proper meaning of ‘pragmata’ in semantic contexts (‘things-being-so-andso’) see de Rijk (2002) I, 104–115; II, 133–135.

3 See de Rijk (1994), 201 ff. 2 20 chapter one considering the things according to their mutual logical relationships. That is why logic is also said to be about second intentions: De ortu scientiarum, cap. XLVIII, 459 Judy: Hinc etiam patet quare dicitur esse de secundis intentionibus et de nominibus significantibus secundas intentiones. Res enim ipsae sunt primae intentiones, et nomina eas significantia, cuiusmodi sunt ‘substantia’, ‘quantitas’ et huiusmodi, sunt nomina primarum intentionum. Sed rationes rerum, cuiusmodi sunt universale, particulare, antecedens, consequens et huiusmodi, sunt secundae intentiones, et nomina eas significantia nomina secundarum intentionum.
