syllogism (noun) A statement with three parts, the first two of which prove the third correct.

Syllogism is a term from the study of logic. It is a way of proving things. If the first two parts of a statement prove the third one right, it is a syllogism. All men must die, he is a man, so he must die - this is an example of syllogism.

  • His syllogism led to a wrong conclusion. He argued, 'All men have to die, my wife is a woman, so she will not die.'
  • His syllogism was, if all humans are mortal, and all Greeks are humans, then all Greeks are mortal.
