Compendium of the study of theology by Roger Bacon( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Part I the author draws on classical authors to illustrate three causes of error in his time and underscores the need for an integral understanding of the signification of terms. In Part II he proposes six themes: a new classification of signs; a theory that common terms signify principally objects, not concepts; connotation as natural signification; common terms signifying an entity and a nonentity are equivocal; terms can lose their signification; a non-Aristotelian classification of equivocation in six modes. Bacon was a very original semanticist and some of his theories helped pave the way for Ockham a few decades later. This treatise opens many windows on to the debate on semantics in the late 13th century

On signs (Opus maius, part 3, chapter 2) by Roger Bacon( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roger Bacon's 'Opus maius' represents an attempt to create a whole new vision of what Christian education should be, one centered on service to the Church. In the second chapter of Part 3 of this work he presents a semiotics with several original features as a partial hermeneutic for studying the scriptures and sacraments. It distinguishes itself in offering a non-Augustinian definition of signs and maps out their logical and natural functions. Bacon spells out numerous ways in which words equivocate, distinguishes between analogy and equivocation, classifies five degrees of equivocation, and comes up with a new notion of analogical signification. Words, he claims, originally were imposed only for existing things and, in contrast with the majority opinion, name directly the things for which they are imposed and not the latter's concepts. When a name signifies a thing, he says, it also co-signifies anything logically or naturally connected with that thing - its concept, its genus, the thing's matter and form, its Creator, and so on
