This is an expanded version of the first chapter Richard Whately’s Revitalization of Syllogistic Logic in Aristotle’s Syllogism and the Creation of Modern Logic edited by Lukas M. Verburgt and Matteo Cosci (Bloomsbury, 2023). Drawing upon the author’s 1982 Ph. D. dissertation (https://digitalcollections.dordt.edu/faculty_work/230/ ) and more current scholarship, this essay traces the critical historical background to Whately’s work in more detail than could be done in the published version.
