Paul of Venice on a Puzzle About Uncertainty

Uckelman, Sara L. (Tilburg Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science Tilburg University)

Paper given at the Logic and Interactive Rationality seminar, Tilburg, The Netherlands, 15 March (2012)


Treatises on logic from the high Middle Ages (13th–15th C) often discuss reasoning and inferences involving epistemic terms such as ‘know’, ‘believe’, ‘consider’, ‘under- stand’, ‘notice’, etc. While epistemic logic in this period has hitherto not been widely studied, both the similarities and the differences between medieval epistemic logic and modern epistemic logic make it a fruitful field for research. In this paper we consider a particular epistemic puzzle about uncertainty from the late 14th/early 15th century. We provide the necessary context and background information on medieval epistemology and implicit principles used in epistemic reasoning to provide a formal reconstruction of a specific argument and its counter argument, using this as a case study to highlight interesting features of medieval epistemic logic.

    I had a similar situation. I soared for a long time over how to get out of the water dry. A friend said one decision, only something I rushed so abruptly to change everything that was acquired by back-breaking labor. Decided to be patient for now, to take a closer look? how it turns. What can I say? water wears away the stone. That's really, really so. I advise the author not to be sad. How is it in the song? "whole life ahead".
