Caption: Allegory of logic. 16th-century artwork ('Typus Logice') showing a huntress who represents mathematical logic. This artwork varied between editions. Here, the huntress blows a horn which sprouts two roses. The labelled elements (in Latin) include hunting dogs labelled truth (veritas) and untruth (falsitas) pursuing a hare (problema). At upper right is a forest of opinions (silva opinionis). At lower left is the philosopher Parmenides. This woodcut is from 'Margarita philosophica' (1503). An encyclopedic compilation of knowledge by the German author Georg Reisch (c.1467-1525), it became a standard textbook of the time.
