Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: SYLLOGISTICAL & more

My Word of the Day

SYLLOGISTICAL (SYLLOGI’STICAL) SYLLOGISTICK (SYLLOGI’STICK) adj.[Gr.; from syllogism.] Retaining to a syllogism; consisting of a syllogism.

Though we suppose subject and predicate, and copula, and propositions and syllogistical connexions in their reasoning, there is no such matter; but the intire business is at the same moment present with them, without deducing one thing from another. Hale’s Origin of Mankind.

Though the terms of propositions may be complex, yet where the composition of the whole argument is thus plain, simple, and regular, it is properly called a simple syllogism, since the complexion does not belong to the syllogistick form of it. Watts’s Logick.
