The Sixth Symposium on Medieval Logic and Semantics is the third in a row to have British logic for its theme. The original plan was to deal exclusively with the period before 1250, but experience shows that it is difficult to keep people from talking about the later periods instead. Oxynat was formulated under the impression that such material as the authors find in Magister Abstractionum was not written or read in Paris, at least not so late as in England. Oxynat postulates a connection between thirteenth-century English tradition and the tradition of the twelfth century, when presumably most or all philosophical schools were on the Continent. Anonymus Cantabrigiensis presumably wrote at a time when the philosophical sects had active adherents, but the memory of them was kept alive far into the thirteenth century. Seventh European Symposium on Medieval Logic and Semantics throw light on the philosophical schools of twelfth-century France, and thus indirectly on the tenability of Oxynat.
