Contents

Summary of Contents: al-Shamsīyah fī al-Qawāʾid al-Manṭiqīyah is a work on logic written by Najm al-Dīn ʿUmar ibn ʿUmar Katibī Qazvīnī (died 693 AH/1294). There have been numerous commentaries written on this work, the most well-known of which being "Taḥrīr al-Qawāʿid al-Manṭiqīyah fī Sharḥ al-Risālat al-Shamsīyah" written by Quṭb al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad Rāzī Buvayhī", known as "Quṭb-i Rāzī" (694-766 AH, 1294-1364). On this work itself, two famous glosses have been written: first, a brief gloss on the introduction and preface of Quṭb-i Rāzī's work, called "Ḥāshīyat al-Muqaddamah Taḥrīr al-Qawāʻid al-Manṭiqīyah fī Sharḥ Risālat al-Shamsīyah" written by Burhān al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Kamāl al-Dīn Ḥamīd; and second, a more comprehensive gloss on the full content of Quṭb-i Rāzī's work, called "al-Ḥāshīyat ʿalá Taḥrīr al-Qawāʻid al-Manṭiqīyah" written by Mīr Sayyid Sharīf Jurjānī (740-816 AH/1339-1413). During the same century (i.e. 9th Hijrī AH/15th), ʿImād al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Yaḥyá Fārisī wrote a supergloss on the work of Mīr Sayyid Sharīf Jurjānī and called it Ḥāshīyah Ḥāshīyah ʿalá Taḥrīr al-Qawāʻid al-Manṭiqīyah, known simply as "Ḥāshīyah-i ʿImād".

Logic

Incipit: بسمله، قوله و رتبته علی مقدمه و ثلاث مقالات و خاتمه، قوله هکذا وجد عبراه المتن فی کثیر من النسخ و الصواب انّ لفظ ثلث ههنا زیادت وقعت سهوا من القلم الناسخ یدلّ علی ذلک…
Explicit: … بل نرید بکونه جزء من العلم ان التصدیق بوجود الموضوع جزء منه و هذا الجواب مردود لان الشیخ الرئیس قد صرح فی الشفاء بان التصدیق بوجود الموضوع من المبادی التصدیقیه فلا یکون انه جزاعلی حده بل مندرجا فی المبادی التصدیقیه.
Colophon: تمت… فی عشرین من شهر ذیقعده الحرام سنه الف و سبعین من الهجرة النبویه.
