Not illustrated. 1862 edition. Excerpt: ...unde totidem Hypotheticarum species, suis copulis cognomines. Sed ad Syllogismum non faciunt, Praeter Conditionalem, et Disjunctivam; quarum exempla, Si sapit est beatus. Vel dies est vel nox. Conditionalis habit vim illativam. Unde Conditio ipsa, sive pars prior, quae est instar inferentis, Antecedens dici solet; Assertio, sive pars posterior, quae rationem habet illatae, Consequens; partiumque inter se connexio, Consequential'. e Causalis, e. g. "Because A is B, C is D." This is, of course, only a hypothetical in the loose sense of the above definition. In the same sense were admitted temporal hypothetical, "When A is B, 0 is D;" locals, " Where A is B, C is D," &c. &c. The causal hypothetical proposition is really a curtailed hypothetical syllogism. "Because A is B, C is D," is equivalent to " If A is B, C is D, and A is B." Cf. Hoffbauer, Logik, . 236. Nothing can be more clumsy than the employment of the word conditional in a specific sense, while its Greek equivalent, hypothetical, is used generically. In Boethius, both terms are properly used as synonymous and generic; the two species being called conjunctivi, conjuncti, or connexi, and disjunctivi, or disjuncti. See Boethii Opera, p. 010, Hamilton's Discussions, p. 150. The nomenclature of Boethius is followed by Ramus. With reference to modern usage, however, it will be better to contract the Greek word than to extend the Latin one. Hypothetical, in the following notes, will be used as synonymous with conditional. It has been questioned whether Hypothetical Syllogisms can be reduced to Categorical.
