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.
