In this sense, it echoes Zeno’s method of semi-formal indirect proof and Plato’s diaeresis, though it is not exactly identical with either.

The early Greek Stoics were the first philosophers to recognize the object of normal human perception as predicative or propositional in nature. Fundamentally we do not perceive qualities or things, but situations and things happening, facts.

In chapter one, Barnouw examines Plato's notions of phantasia and predication on the grounds that they set the terms for Stoic logic. Instead, Aristotle understands it to be the representational aspect of perception and judgment, itself conveying no intrinsic claim about reality.

D. 200 : The Stoics 300 . 200 The main idea of the stoic theory of signs: A sign consists of three components: The material signifier; The signified (meaning); The external object. Semiosis is a process of syllogistic induction: From the observable signifier we infer (draw a conclusion) by mediation of the signified about what the sign stands for.

The early Greek Stoics were the first philosophers to recognize the object of normal human perception as predicative or propositional in nature. Fundamentally we do not perceive qualities or things, but situations and things happening, facts. To mark their difference from Plato and Aristotle, the Stoics adopted phantasia as their word for perception. This term had been coined by Plato to designate "deceptive appearance," a combination of sensation and judgment, and the Stoics turned this sense to positive account, by linking it to the ground-breaking work of Plato and Aristotle on predication, the framing of propositions. To corner the Sophist, in his Sophist, Plato had argued that phantasia was of the nature of judgment and statement, capable of truth and falsity. The Stoics made phantasia or propositional perception the starting point and basis for their propositional logic, and showed that the revealing power of perception is carried over in the formation of logical propositions and the interrelation of propositions in signs and proof. Author Jeffrey Barnouw proposes new interpretations and translations for other characteristic Stoic terms in addition to phantasia, including lekton, pragma, axioma, huparchein, ptosis, tunchanon, emphasis, endeiktikon and metabasis. Barnouw also demonstrates a multi-faceted and deep affinity between Stoic logic and the semiotic logic of Charles S. Peirce.
