New from Editiones scholasticae

I called attention some time back to Editiones scholasticae, a new German publishing venture devoted to publishing works in Scholastic philosophy, including reprints of works which have long been out of print.  Three new reprints are set to appear, which will be available in the United States this August via Transaction Publishers:


  1. A good venture, though the prices are a little unnerving. Happily I've found not a few scholastic works at the Internet Archive texts, so have a look there too.

  2. Actually, all computer arithmetic is quurithmetic. There's always an upper and lower limit on calculations. In fact, several distinct limits: you chose which ones (yes, plural) your program will use depending on performance, memory, storage and other requirements. If you try summing beyond such a limit, the output either wraps around to 0, to the maximum negative number, or to some error condition, of which there are also several options. Besides, sometimes triggering such errors is intentional. So, yeah. :)
