Like other conjunctions such as ‘if’ and ‘because of’, a qua connective links up sentences, clauses, and phrases. Qua connectives occur at important points in the work of many philosophers: in Avicenna’s threefold distinction of quiddity, held by many to be the main medieval solution to the problem of universals (Al Madkhal, 15,1-15); in the supposition of subject terms in sentences like 'man is the worthiest of creatures' according to William of Sherwood (Introductiones ad logicam, 77, 18- 28); in the analysis of the Incarnation by Aquinas (Sentences III.XI.l; Summa theologiae III. 16.8-10), and Scotus (Sentences III.XI.2).  …
