## Syllogism Generator/Tester

### Minor Premise 2

Tool to test or create syllogisms. All men are mortal, and Socrates is a man, so Socrates is mortal.

### What is a syllogism? (definition)

A syllogism is, in its simplest form, a set of 2 statements from which a conclusion is deduced. We call the two affirmations the premises: the first premise (major) and the second premise (minor). A syllogism is generally written in 3 lines, the third is deduced from the first two.

Example: All men are mortal (affirmation 1: major premise)
Socrates is a man (affirmation 2: minor premise)
So, Socrates is mortal. (conclusion)

There are an infinity of syllogisms, but structurally there are only 24 types of syllogisms which can have a logical conclusion.

The conclusion is a purely logical conclusion. If at least one of the 2 assertions / premises is false, then it is possible to deduce things that are completely false, although perfectly logical. Similarly it is possible to deduce something right from false or incomplete premises.

Example: dCode is a website
All websites are great. (sic)
So, dCode is great.

### How to use the Syllogism Generator?

For a syllogism to be valid, it must consist of two premises. A premise is itself made up of a quantity (All, None, etc.), a subject, a verb (is / is not) and a predicate (a subject attribute). The two premises must also have a middle subject or predicate, ie it must be part of the 2 premises.

Example: No A are B. All C are A. => No C are B.

dCode can not handle plurals or variant spellings. Make sure to write exactly the same words for the pivot element (ideally a singular script).
