A key work in the development of modern science, written by a "logician at the forefront of the movement that expanded the analysis of language based on the properties of terms...As a natural philosopher, Albert of Saxony worked in the context of the new Parisian physics, contributing to its spread through central Europe" (Stanford). Today, his major contribution lies not in logical innovation, but in the clear, precise, and concise synthesis of logical concepts that would move the natural sciences ahead.
