Logic is the science of correct thinking. A classic definition is new and necessary reasoning. It's new because you didn't know the item before, and necessary because a correctly formulated syllogism has to be true if the bases are true. This syllogism is a well-known example: All men are mortal. Socrates is a man. Therefore, Socrates is mortal. We took two axioms and made a new and necessary conclusion.
Asked in Philosophy and Philosophers, Socrates
Did Socrates use syllogism?
It can be said that Socrates' use of syllogism was only rudimentary when compared to Aristotle. It was this third- generation student of Socrates who developed Syllogism to a fine art. The doctrine of the syllogism is Aristotle's most significant contribution to philosophy. A syllogism is a trio of propositions of which the third, i.e, the conclusion, is derived from the other two, the major and the minor. For example, man is a rational animal, Socrates is a man, therefore Socrates is a rational animal. The argument is that if an individual possesses a number of characteristic qualities of a class, the individual will then have almost all qualities characteristic of that class. It was Aristotle who thus created the new science of Logic.
