Introduction, critical edition, and indexes by Ria van der Lecq.
"The present fascicle contains the first treatise of the Summulae, called De propositionibus. In earlier fascicles we
referred to this treatise as De introductionibus, which is the name of the corresponding chapter of Peter of Spain's Tractatus. (19) Buridan
himself, however, does not use the term introductiones; in 1.1.1 he announces that the first treatise is going to deal with propositions and their
parts and attributes. Therefore, ' De propositionibus' seems to be a more appropriate title.
The treatise consists of eight chapters, which correspond with Peter of Spain's Tractatus 1 ( De introductionibus) in the
chapter in Buridan chapter in Tractatus 1
1 De quibusdam praemittendis 1-3
2 De nomine, verbo et oratione 4-6
3 De propositione 7-10
4 De oppositionibus propositionum categoricarum 11-14
5 De aequipollentiis 18
6 De conversionibus propositionum 15
7 De propositionibus hypotheticis 16-17
8 De propositionibus modalibus 19-25
A closer comparison between the two treatises (20) shows that Buridan elaborated more on the topics of chapters 6 and 7 (conversions and
hypothetical propositions) than the author of his basic text and that he had an extraordinary interest in modal propositions. He even preferred to write a new
text for this chapter, because he considered the auctor's account to be incomplete (1.8.1).
The present edition includes the preface ( Prooemium) of the Summulae, in which Buridan says some remarkable things about
logic as an art (see below n.3.3) and in which he warns the reader that he will not follow his author's text in every respect: "occasionally I am going to have
to say and write things that differ from what he has said and written, whenever it appears to me suitable to do so"."

Introduction, critical edition and indexes by L. M. De Rijk.
"The present edition contains the second tract [of Buridan's Summulae], De praedicabilibus, which deals with the five
'predicables', introduced by the Neoplatonist commentator of Aristotle, Porphyry (c. 233-c. 304 A.D.) in his introductory book ( Isagoge)to the
Stagirite's Categories, viz. 'genus', 'species', 'differentia', 'proprium', and 'accidens'. From as early as the eleventh century, medieval authors
commented upon Boethius' (480-524) translation of, and commentary upon, this work.
Buridan's discussion of the predicables is mainly based on the corresponding tract of Peter of Spain's manual. His comments are preceded by
the complete text of the lemma from Peter to be discussed. It should be no surprise that Buridan's quotations should go back to an adapted version of Peter's
Buridan's work consists of elementary exegesis as well as extensive objections and dubitationes in which specific questions are
dealt with, mostly in an original fashion." pp. XVII and XXI.

Introduction, critical edition and indexes by Joke Spruyt
" De syllogismis is the fifth treatise of John Buridan's Summulae dialecticae, a textbook he wrote for his logic course in
the Faculty of Arts at the University of Paris. De syllogismis contains material related to Aristotle's Analytica Priora and Boethius's
De hypotheticis syllogismis. The textbook discusses inferences involving not only propositions de inesse, but also propositions featuring
oblique, reduplicative and infinite terms. Buridan displays a keen interest in modal inferences and inferences involving propositional attitudes. Buridan's
De syllogismis continues along the lines of his nominalist conception of the relations between mind, language and reality."

" De locis dialecticis is the sixth treatise of John Buridan’s Summulae dialecticae, a textbook he wrote for his logic
course in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Paris. De locis dialecticis immediately builds upon Peter of Spain, but Buridan shows his awareness
that the doctrine of the loci took its origin in Boethius’ De differentiis topicis, and he frequently quotes from that work. Though not
introducing any basically new ideas Buridan contributes a large number of precisions to the standard descriptions of the several loci, and he shows
that the list of the loci and the traditional division of it into three sections is not something given by nature, but was established by earlier
logicians, as they found convenient. Accordingly such things can be changed if something better is found. Buridan has here given us perhaps the most precise
and most interesting exposition of the doctrine of the loci in the medieval logical literature."

"Treatise 9, De practica sophismatum, or Sophismata for short, has been edited once in full and once in part within the
last few decades. The 1977 publication of the full text by Th.K. Scott contributed significantly to the scholarly community's awareness of the merits of
Buridan's work, but the Latin text was only weakly anchored in the manuscript tradition; in fact it reproduced an incunabulum (our Z) emended by means of
collation with usually one manuscript (our F). G.E. Hughes' partial edition of 1982 was based on six manuscripts (our A, E, F, I, 'I' and W) as well as on an
incunabulum (our Z) and represented a considerable step forward on the road to a sound text. Our aim is to take one more step along on that road, by re editing
the whole treatise on the basis of not only more but, we think, also better manuscripts." (p. XI, notes omitted).
