Boethius's De Topicis Differentiis
"Students of Boethius and of medieval logic will . . . profit from Stump's work on this difficult treatise. Her translation, . . . the first into English . . . and the interpretative essays, e.g., on dialectic and Aristotle's Topics, Peter of Spain, and the Porphyrian Tree, are useful and informative."--Library Journal
