Example text

I n this way the m i n o r premiss is left out i n cases of this sort. Conversely there are cases i n w h i c h they leave out the u n i v e r s a l premiss as k n o w n , but posit the m i n o r , as i n the case of the person who syllogizes that this person deserves punishment through the proposition 'He is a n adulterer' (or a thief or a temple robber). I n a l l these cases the u n i v e r s a l premiss, w h i c h says that every adulterer (or every thief or every temple robber) deserves punishment, is omitted as evident; the conclusion of these is 'Therefore this person deserves punishment'.

So it is evident that i n a l l these cases the mistake results from the setting out of terms, since i f the things corresponding to the states are substituted, nothing false results. Therefore, it is clear that i n the case of premisses of this k i n d one should substitute what corresponds to the state for the state and posit it as term]. 47 48 25 30 35 H e has shown that i n the case of the first a n d second figure w h e n the major premiss is t a k e n as necessary, the minor as unqualified, the conclusion is not necessary because the setting out of terms is not done appropriately; he now says that i n the case of the t h i r d figure the absurdity does not arise because one of the premisses is t a k e n to be necessary and the conclusion comes to be u n l i k e this k i n d of premiss.

For, i f these things are posited, it is necessary that a part of a substance be a substance, but this has not been inferred syllogistically through the premisses; rather premisses are missing]. 12 10 Here he indicates clearly to us that one should not simply attend to the conclusion a n d t h i n k that there is a syllogism i f something follows necessarily from what is assumed. F o r it is not the case that i f a syllogism proves something by necessity thereby also where some­ t h i n g is proved to follow by necessity from what is assumed, this is a syllogism, since necessity is more inclusive t h a n syllogism.
