---Elena Ficara, -History and Philosophy of Logic "Buridan's Treatise on Consequences is without a doubt one of the most important texts in the Latin medieval tradition in logic. However, until now it was only available in Latin or in an unreliable English translation of the 1980s. For these reasons, the publication of this excellent translation of Buridan's treatise is a huge contribution to medieval logic scholarship; its importance cannot be over-emphasized."----Catarina Dutilh Novaes, University of Groningen
