Apodeictic Possibility

  • Adriane Rini
Part of the The New Synthese Historical Library book series (SYNL, volume 68)


Part III of this book will be about how possibility features in syllogisms and about how syllogisms about possibility link with well known principles of Aristotle’s metaphysics. Before we look at that, we need to look first at what I call apodeictic possibility where M is simply an abbreviation for ~L~, and where the principles that govern the apodeictic syllogistic still apply.
