The tract on logic that has now become known as the Introductiones Montanae maiores provides us with useful evidence of the kind of education that was on offer in the Parisian schools of the 12th century. In this contribution, I will go through a number of arguments brought up in connection with the definitions of basic logical concepts. By doing so I aim to provide more details about some of the most important theoretical positions of the tract.
