The Latin “Third Man”. A Survey and Edition of Texts from the XIIIth Century

Abstract : Readers of the Cahiers de l’Institut du Moyen Age Grec et Latin are long familiar with editions of medieval texts which bear on similar issues or belong to the same topic. Those gathered here for the first time all dwell on the Latin interpretation of the « Third Man » argument as it occurs in chapter twenty-two of Aristotle’s Sophistici elenchi. The introduction will give the general outlines of the subject, which is to be dealt with in more detail in a forthcoming book whose scope will be the argument’s history as a whole. The edition serves a twofold purpose : primarily, it is meant to provide a new, substantial contribution to the medieval corpus of the « Third Man » argument, rather incomplete to this day. Secondarily, it provides a background survey which ought to enable readers to restate the case, should they disagree with the thesis argued for in the forthcoming monography and summarized hereafter.
