A kind of → deductive reasoning
whereby from two initial → propositions
(two → premises) a third related
proposition (→ conclusion) is derived. The typical
form of a → categorical syllogism is "A is B;"
"C is A;" "Therefore, C is B." For example,
"All humans are mortal."
"John is human."
"Therefore, John is mortal."
"Mortal" (B) is called the
→ major term; it occurs in the first premise and
is the → predicate of the conclusion.
"John" (C), the subject of the conclusion, is called the
→ minor term. "Human," which is common to
both premises and is excluded from the conclusion, is called the
→ middle term.

"Therefore, all animals are mammals."
