The stagehaving been set, the nature ofthe study which follows can beat least partially foreseen. IfSt Thomas makes analogicalsignification a logical matter,we must determine what for himlogic is. Then we must examinehis views on signification ingeneral, after which we canprofitably turn to an initialstatement on the analogy ofnames.
