AdjectiveEdit

Aristotelian (not comparable)

  1. Of or pertaining to Aristotle, his philosophy, logic, or followers.
    • Having noted that, it should be kept in mind that such scholars (i.e. those who reject that Cusanus is trivialist) should not cite as evidence for denying he was a trivialist the fact that Cusanus was an advocate of Aristotelian logic and the Law of Non-Contradiction.47 This is because an advocacy of both Aristotelian logic and the law of Non-Contradiction are quite compatible with being a trivialist – the trivialist accepts the truth of all propositions, including the Law of Non-Contradiction and other laws of Aristotelian logic.
