79 Review Vincent Ferrer, Tractatus de suppositionibus. Critical edition with an intro- duction by John A. Trentman. Series: Grammatica Speculativa. Theory of Language and Logic in the Middle Ages; volume 2. Stuttgart-Bad Canstatt (Frommann-Holzboog), 1977. Pp. 188 (DM 148 (subscription-price until 31.3.79: DM 128)). Already a few years ago (for instance in the S.I.E.P.M.-Bulletin 16-17 (1974-75) (p. 166)) a series Gyammatica Speculativa was announced purporting to edit texts and studies on Medieval theory of language, logic and theory of science. They are not only meant for historical interest, but also for modern discussion on the subjects. In 1977 the first two volumes were published: an edition of John Buridan's Sophismata with a short introduction by T. K. Scott, and an edition of Vincent Ferrer's Tyactatus de suppositionibus with an intro- duction by John A. Trentman. This last book will be the subject of this review. First, some short remarks about Ferrer's life and works, for which I follow Trentman's interpretation of the data (see his Introduction I, p. Izff.). Ferrer was born in Valencia in about 1350. He made his profession as a Dominican monk in 1368 and received a philosophical and theological education in Toulouse between 1368
