"A syllogism consists of three parts: a major premise, a minor premise, and a conclusion. Each of the premises has one term in common with the conclusion: in the case of the major premise this is the major term, or predicate of the conclusion; in the case of the minor premise it is the minor term, the subject of the conclusion. For example:
- Major premise: All men are mortal.
- Minor premise: Socrates is a man.
- Conclusion: Socrates is mortal.
The order in which the major and minor terms appear in relation to the middle term in the premises is arbitrary. The conclusion must be in the form of minor term followed by major term."
