[26arg] In what words the philosopher Aristotle defined a syllogism; and an interpretation of his definition in Latin terms.
ARISTOTLE defines a syllogism in these lines: 1 “A sentence in which, granted certain premises, something else than these premises necessarily follows as the result of these premises.” The following interpretation of this definition seemed to me fairly good: “A syllogism is a sentence in which, certain things being granted and accepted, something else than that which was granted is necessarily established through what was granted.”
