Gulyga, 1985, p. 59. 40. In the case of logic, for example, we possess transcripts of Kant's lecture series from three decades: from the early 1770s (the 'Blomberg Logic', named after an earlier owner of the transcript, and the 'Philippi Logic'); from the 1780s ('Vienna', 'Heschel' and 'Pö1itz' Logics); and from 1792 (the 'Dohna-Wundlacken Logic').
