Early Aristotelianism Between Humanism and Ramism
Early British Aristotelianism, after the momentous medieval Scholastic systematization of Aristotelian philosophy, was defined by its position against humanistic logic and Ramism. It was not a particularly advanced form of Aristotelianism and chiefly involved commentaries on Aristotelian texts, but it rejected any kind of rhetorical and dialectical logic that did not serve science.
