3 ABED, Shukri B. AL-FARABI, Abu Nasr Mohammed) ARISTOTLE) Aristotelian Logic and the Arabic Language in Alfarabi
State University of New York Press, Albany, 1991, ISBN:0791403971 
ABED, Shukri B. Aristotelian Logic and the Arabic Language in Alfarabi. (Albany: State University of New York Press, 1991). First Printing. Pp. (8),[ix]-xxv,(1),[1]-201,(3). 8vo, decorated pink glossy paper covered boards, dark blue titles to front and spine. "This book explores the reaction of tenth-century Arab philosopher Abu Nasr Alfarabi to the logical works of Aristotle. From numerous short treatises the author develops a systematic and comprehensive topical survey of Alfarabi's logical writings. The book is divided into two major parts: language as a tool of logic (chapters 1-5) and logic as a tool with which to analyze language (chapter 6). The first five chapters deal with Alfarabi's analysis of the meanings of various terms as they are used in logic and philosophy. Alfarabi refutes the Artab grammarians who claimed that Arab logicians were building a language within a language and shows that the philosophical meanings of terms are in fact their most original and essential meanings. The final chapter deals with Alfarabi's analysis of certain aspects of the Arabic language (such as copula) and demonstrates that Arabic, like any natural language, conforms to universal logical structures of which natural languages are only a concrete expression." - from the rear cover. Contents: 1. Particulars and Universals: An Introduction to Alfarabi's Logical Lexicon; 2. Definition and Description in Alfarabi's System; 3. The Concept of Essence in Alfarabi; 4. The Concepts of Demonstration, Division, and Classification and Their Relationship to Definition;5. The Term Mawjud in Nonlogical Contexts; 6. Alfarabi's Linguistic Philos ophy. Very good. 37.50

"Inter-Plays is a collection of literary and critical texts. The literary texts were written by well-known contemporary authors such as Henry Beissel, Alan Ayckbourn, and Roger Hall respectively from Canada, Great Britain and New Zealand. In order to widen the reader's understanding each literary contribution is followed by a critical commentary of a university scholar with the intention of providing a first interpretation and thus putting the text in perspective with regard to its meaning, its position among the other works of its author and discussing its context." - front the front flap.

"Albert Reiner Glaap was born in Wuppertal, North Rhine-Westphalia on September 1, 1929. Having attended the local grammar school, he went to the university of Cologne in 1950, where he took his degree in English, Latin, and Philosophy. From 1952 to 1953 he was a student at King's College, London, and in 1955 he was awarded a doctorate for his dissertation, entitled "Bishop Hall's Virgidemiarum, seen as written in imitation of Juvenal: A contribution to the beginnings of English satire".

A.- R. Glaap began his career as a teacher of English and Latin at the Luisengymnasium in Dusseldorf, where he taught from 1956 until 1971. During this period he took a year off to teach at the William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia (1961/1962), and also became tutor in charge of trainee teachers of English in the Dusseldorf area from 1963 to 1971. In 1971 he became director of the pedagogical Institute (an institute for in service teacher training) in Dusseldorff before being offered a professorship at the teacher training college of North Rhine Westphalia in Neuss in 1973. Since 1980 he has held the post of Professor of English at the heinrich Heine University of Dusseldorf. .

His main fields of interest and study have been Canadian Literature, especially Canadian drama, contemporary English Literature, New Zealand Literature, methodology of English language teaching and problems of literary translation. He has published numerous articles and books in all these fields, and in 1992 was made an officer of the British Empire for his outstanding merits." from rear cover.
