About this Item

Manuscript on paper in Latin, written in a uniform small cursive over a progression of time under naïve calligraphic headings, some sparsely decorated with pen ornament. Small 4to (185 x 125mm). [N.p., n.d. but early 18th century]. First part titled, "Institutiones Dialectice sev summule iuxta Miram Ancelici precepioris Doctrinam eiusdemque Schole inconcussa principia." This work with a nod toward Scholastic theory, the last part roughly translating "the school of unshakeable principles." Miram Ancelici has been traced as an author on works of theology printed in the early 18th century, although this text stands alone. Contents are mostly Scholastic philosophy and 18th century notes including theory, problems, corollaries and observations with relation to philosophy. A second life to the book appears in work on Aristotelian Logic. This book including, four hand-drawn diagrams on the "Properties of Things," Aristotle made a distinction between the essential and accidental properties of a thing, and diagram of "Genera" or species described from the position they occupy on a figure of a tree, which was devised by Porphyry, an eminent commentator of Aristotle. The trunk supports the genera and species and the branches support the differentiae. Contents possibly incomplete, last leaf loose and ending on catchword, other passage plentiful and clear under subheadings. Bound in original vellum, good condition with only slight marginal worming and lightest dampstaining. Scholasticism, the philosophical system of medieval Christian thinkers, was frequently studied throughout the 18th century and belonged under the umbrella of Aristotelianism. All over western and central Europe and also in Spanish America the continuance of Scholasticism ensured that higher education remained generally within an Aristotelian framework.
