|Title:||An Evaluation of the Relationship Between the Syllogistic Implication and the Scientific Syllogism of Aristotle|
|Authors:||Hanevy, Brendan Laurence|
|Abstract:||<p>In Aristotle's Prior Analytics he develops his doctrine of syllogistic implication. In the Posterior Analytics he presents his doctrine of the scientific syllogism which, for him, is productive of scientific knowledge. My concern in this work is to analyse the relationship between his doctrine of syllogistic implication and his doctrine of scientific syllogism.</p> <p>It would seem that there is an irreducibly distinctive difference between the roles performed by the syllogistic implicational form. Consequently. the syllogistic implicational form cannot be used as the form of the scientific syllogism and, hence, the value of the syllogistic implication does not depend on any relationship it might have to the scientific syllogism. The syllogistic implication is valuable as a body of theoretical knowledge.</p>|
