An introduction to logic by Sa'd al-Din Mas'ud al-Taftazani (d. 792/1390). Sa'd al-Din Mas'ud al-Taftazani, a renowned scholar, was born in the village of Taftazan in the north-eastern Iranian province of Khurasan. He also wrote works on Arabic grammar, rhetoric, theology, logic, law, and Quranic exegesis (tafsir). This extract on logic was taken by the author (not mentioned in the present manuscript) from his larger work Tahdhib al-Kalam.
