Sample text

A statement may be either contingently or logically true or false. For a contingent statement, we look to the world to see whether it is true or false, but for tautologies and contradictions, there is no need to look. For the logician, all the facts are in. Two statements are contradictions if they are inconsistent with each other and there is no third statement that is inconsistent with both. Two statements are contraries if they are inconsistent with each other and some third statement may be inconsistent with both.

Each syllogism has three terms: two premises and a conclusion. The two premises and the conclusion each contain two terms. Each term of a syllogism has a form or mood: A, E, I or O. There are four figures, which are determined by the location of the middle term which is common to the two premises. Thus with s for subject, p for predicate and m for middle: Figure 1 m p s m s p 2 p m s m s p 3 m p m s s p 4 p m m s s p 39 Peter Strawson Each of the four figures has 64 moods (all the permutations of the four moods over the four terms in the figure), so there are altogether 256 possible forms of the syllogism.

Such a system would need as axioms such laws as those of immediate inference and the square of opposition and at least one syllogistic law. It would need appropriate rules of inference and the theorems of the propositional calculus. That kind and degree of matching between tradition and modern is manifest. The traditional logic has indeed its critics, but Strawson thinks that with only a few reservations the traditional rules do conform to the use of words in ordinary language. The significant standard criticisms of the older system centre on the question of existential import: that is, for the moods A, E, I and O, is there a commitment to the actual existence of the members of the terms?
