Topica Project

Research project

Short description

The Topica Project is led by Ana María Mora-Márquez and funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. Its aim is to propose a reading of Aristotle's account of argumentation in the Topics, and of its medieval reception (ca. 1250-ca. 1350), from a pragmatic perspective. In order to provide the material necessary for its medieval part, the project also includes the critical edition of two 13th century commentaries on the Topics – an anonymous one and that by Radulphus Brito. Gustavo Fernández Walker – our postdoctoral researcher – does the edition of the anonymous commentary, and Mora-Márquez that of the commentary by Radulphus Brito.
