Huby (retired philosophy, Liverpool U.) continues her commentary on the sources for information about Greek philosopher Theophrastus (370-285 BC) published in two volumes in 1992. Here she looks at references to his logic in documents up to 1450. Reflecting the arrangement of the mother study, she considers such aspects as doctrines, titles of books, categorical syllogism, modal logic, hypothetical syllogism, demonstration, and definition. Dimitri Gutas (Arabic languages and literature, Yale U.) covers the Arabic material. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
