Example text

A) 'every man recovers' (d) 'every not-man does not 30 20'1 (b) 'every man does not recover' (c) 'every not-man recovers' recover' Here one must not say 'not every man' but must add the 'not', the negation, to 'man'. For 'every' does not signify a universal, but that it is taken universally. This is clear from the following. 'See Prior Analytics I 46. 10 32 DE INTERPRETATIONE (a) 'a man recovers' (d) 'a not-man does not recover' 15 20 25 30 35 20'1 \0 15 20 (b) 'a man does not recover' (c) 'a not-man recovers' For these differ from the previous ones in not being universal.

These and others like them are the absurdities that follow if it is necessary for every affirmation and negation either about universals spoken of universally or about particulars, that one of the opposites be true and the other false, and that nothing of what happens is as chance has it, but everything is and happens of necessity. So there would be no need to deliberate or to take trouble (thinking that if we do this, this will happen, but if we do not, it will not). For there is nothing to prevent someone's having said ten thousand years beforehand that this would be the case, and another's having denied it; so that whichever of the two was true to say then, will be the case of necessity.

A name is a spoken sound significant by convention, without time, none of whose parts is significant in separation. For in 'Whitfield' the 'field' does not signify anything in its own right, as it does in the phrase 'white field'. Not that it is the same with complex names as with simple ones: in the latter the part is in no way significant, in the former it has some force but is not significant of anything in separation, for example the 'boat' in 'pirate-boat'. I say 'by convention' because no name is a name naturally but only when it has become a symbol.
