Antoine Arnauld and Pierre Nicole were philosophers and theologians associated with Port-Royal Abbey, a centre of the Catholic Jansenist movement in seventeenth-century France. Their enormously influential Logic or the Art of Thinking, which went through five editions in their lifetimes, treats topics in logic, language, theory of knowledge and metaphysics, and also articulates the response of 'heretical' Jansenist Catholicism to orthodox Catholic and Protestant views on grace, free will and the sacraments. In attempting to combine the categorical theory of the proposition with a Cartesian account of knowledge, their Logic represents the classical view of judgment which inspired the modern transformation in logic and semantic theory by Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein and recent philosophers. This edition presents a new translation of the text, together with a historical introduction and suggestions for further reading.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jill Buroker's translation of the Port Royal Logic is everything a good translation should be, i.e., close enough to the original to count as scholarly, while at the same time readable enough to fully convey the sense and style of the suthor's text. As a clear improvement on either of the two previous translations, and Dickoff and James (1964), it will be of interest to anyone studying logic written in this period....One of the most striking features of the Port Royal Logic is the fact that its style-direct, engaging and often very witty-makes itseem like something written in this century....a remarkable work by any standards....Jill Broker's new edition will renew interest in this significant work." James VAn Evra, Philosophy in Review
