Formal Logic

A. N. Prior

In the logic of Aristotle, and in its development at the hands of the medieval and earlier commentators, numerous theses were developed that closely resemble theses of the modern functional calculus. The first section of this chapter discusses the Aristotelian propositional forms and their logical relations. The second section considers the Aristotelian syllogistic forms and their logical relations. The last section explores other types of propositions.

Keywords:   Aristotle, propositional forms, logical relations, syllogistic forms
