Thought About Thought: Twenty-Four Centuries of Now-And-Then
Development and the Consequences

John Warfield

Thanks to the pioneering study of Father I. M. Bochenski ("A History of Formal Logic") we are able to trace the key milestones in the evolution of thought about thought, and identify just a few key events in this evolution. I will identify these milestones, show how they are related, and describe the present state of this subject, explaining what the consequences of this work are for the future of higher education for those who choose to take advantage of the present state of the subject.
