4. Fields of medieval philosophy Logic Partly as an inheritance from the Platonic schools, where the curriculum began with Aristotle’s logical texts, logic was equally prominent in medieval philosophy as it is in contemporary analytical philosophy. As today, logic was both studied for itself with great technical sophistication, and used as a tool throughout philosophy, where it set the form of discussion.

By contrast, medieval logic, although formal to a greater or lesser degree, never lost its links with ordinary
