Pérez Ilzarbe, P. (2004). ""John Buridan and Jerónimo Pardo on the Notion of Propositio"". En R. L. Friedman and S. Ebbesen, eds. John Buridan and Beyond. Topics in the Language Sciences (1300-1700). (pp. 153-181). Copenhagen: The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters
The first section offers a reconstruction of Buridan’s theory of propositions, along the following lines: on the
syntactic plane, propositions obtain a special type of unity from the presence of a copula; on the semantic plane, the fact that
a proposition does not have any specific significate (different from the significate of terms), does not erase the distinction
between propositions and terms: the copula performs an act of “saying”, in virtue of which propositions can be true or false.
The second section summarises Pardo’s theory of propositions, showing how in this case a Buridanian starting point led to a
result very different from that which Buridan reached.
