Paul of Venice's Logica Magna is a lengthy and elaborate work on logic, written in the 1390s. It displays an encyclopaedic knowledge of the views of Paul's contemporaries and predecessors, and also advances detailed arguments for all his own opinions about nearly all of the issues discussed by 14th-century logicians. It is therefore a major source of information about the development of medieval logic. The present volume contains a text and translation of the chapters which deal with conditional propositions and inferences. Detailed notes are designed to make Paul's terminology and background ideas and assumptions more accessible to modern readers, and to analyze his arguments. An appendix contains substantial extracts from the writings of two 14th-century logicians, Ralph Strode and John Venator, of whose works Paul makes extensive use in this part of the Logica Magna .
