The Dominican philosopher and theologian Peter Crockaert, also known as Peter of Brussels (c. 1460–1514), was a former member of the nominalist circle of John Mair. Having received nominalist training from one of the prominent post-medieval scholastic logicians, he entered the Dominican order and adopted a Thomist identity. As a result, his sentential semantics combines thirteenth-century Thomist framework with late medieval logical analysis, including the complexe significabile debate and analysis of self-reference. Crockaert's analysis of self-reference displays three notable features: Crockaert 1) defi nes truth in contextualist terms; 2) lists alternative approaches to self-reference as part of analysis of contradiction; 3) attempts to relate analysis of self-reference to Aquinas's works.
