LANDIM FILHO, Raul. Predication and judgment in Aquinas.Translated byDavid Rodgers. Kriterion [online]. 2007, vol.3Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0100-512X.
In this article, I present an interpretation of Thomas Aquinas's theory of judgment (statement), examining semantic, epistemological and ontological aspects of this theory. Elements of judgment such as concepts, phantasms, predication (combination and division), reflection, affirmation, truth and falsity are explained. The article shows that this interpretation of Aquinas's theory of judgment may contribute to clarify fundamental distinctions (such as the distinctions between being, essence and existence) of Aquinas's metaphysics.
