Peter of Spain
Language in Dispute. An English translation of Peter of Spain's 'Tractatus' called afterwards SUMMULAE LOGICALES, based on the critical edition by L.M. de Rijk
This book is a translation of Petrus Hispanus' 13th century text. Hispanus was a contemporary of linguistic theorists called 'Modistae' after 12th to 14th century writings entitled <i>De Modis Significandi</i>. Their concerns involved differences between the way things are in themselves, how we understand them, and how grammatical conventions require us to communicate about them.
