¶ Also from Dictionary of 17th & 18th century Dutch philosophers: “Logic is defined as the art of providing the intellect with the rules that lead to certain knowledge. ‘Modern philosophy’ calls logic the art of thinking, and the logician a physician of the mind. Logic consists of a so-called theoretical an a practical part. Subsequently Van de Wijnpersse deals with ideas, judgement, reasoning, and the certainty of the different forms of knowledge. The certainty of our knowledge of the external world is based on sense perception, and the analogy and the testimony of other persons …” (see id., Institutiones metapysicae).
