عنوان مقاله [English]
The writing of some treatises has been attributed to shaykh-al Rais Ibn Sina on logic that so far remain in manuscript form. The ascription of some of these treatises to him is in question. The study and analysis of these works and their comparision to the works that are definitely written by Ibn Sina is necessary for determining the degree of possible ascription of these works as well as maximum elucidation of his views in his field. One of these treatises is "Allusion to the Science of Logic" that as its title shows alludes briefly and in passing to some of the problems in logic.
The questions which are discussed in these short glosses include the nature of logic and its usefulness, ten categories, kinds of analogy, definition of genus, definition of speech, category in answer to "what", mixed analogy, kinds of predicate and predication of arguments that Ibn Sina offers his critical views on what he had previously said about some of these cases.
