dc.description.abstractThe problem of this dissertation is to determine how Aristotle, Kant, and Bowne defined a category. This question is one which has neither been answered previously nor approached through an exhaustive analysis of relevant texts. The dissertation examines first Aristotle's Categories. This early document suggests that simple verbal expressions signifying substance, quantity, quality, relation, place, time, position, state, action, and affection are the categories. The doctrine implied may mean a classification of namable entities. It is argued, however, that at this stage "category" for Aristotle meant the ultimate type of predicate which is predicable of namable entities.[TRUNCATED]en_US
