Every man is an animal
But is 'Every man is an animal' true when there are no men? Some new pages in the Logic Museum on the medieval dispute about this question. The main page outlines the controversy (which lasted from the early thirteenth to the late sixteenth century). The first subpage contains new translations (and Latin sources fresh to the web) of early writings on the subject. Much more to follow.
