What is the law of the mind?

**what are the 3 laws of the mind**.

An example of a syllogism is “**All mammals are animals**. All elephants are mammals. Therefore, all elephants are animals.” In a syllogism, the more general premise is called the major premise (“All mammals are animals”). … The conclusion joins the logic of the two premises (“Therefore, all elephants are animals”).

The law of syllogism, also called reasoning by transitivity, is a valid argument form of deductive reasoning that follows a set pattern. It is similar to the transitive property of equality, which reads: **if a = b and b = c then, a = c**.

The law of syllogism is also known as **reasoning by transitivity**. It is similar to the transitive property of equality, which says if this whatsit is like that doohickey, and that doohickey is like this thingamabob, then this whatsit is like this thingamabob: If a = b. and if b = c.

- Conditional Syllogism: If A is true then B is true (If A then B).
- Categorical Syllogism: If A is in C then B is in C.
- Disjunctive Syllogism: If A is true, then B is false (A or B).

1) **The middle term must be distributed in at least one premise**. 2) If a term is distributed in the conclusion, then it must be distributed in a premise. 3) A categorical syllogism cannot have two negative premises. 4) A negative premise must have a negative conclusion.

**If a square is a rectangle and if a rectangle is a parallelogram**, then a square is a parallelogram. Sally goes to the mall every Saturday. Today is Saturday. Therefore, Sally will go to the mall today.

In the rule of syllogism, there are **three conditional arguments**. The hypothesis is the conditional statement that follows after the word if. The inference follows after the word then.

The law of detachment deals with **a conditional statement that one can break down into the antecedent**, which leads to the conclusion. However, the law of syllogism deals with the addition or combination of two separate statements to get to a conclusion.

- Rule One: There must be three terms: the major premise, the minor premise and the conclusion — no more, no less.
- Rule Two: The minor premise must be distributed in at least one other premise.
- Rule Three: Any terms distributed in the conclusion must be distributed in the relevant premise.

Another valid form of **deductive reasoning** is the Law of Syllogism. It allows you to draw conclusions from two conditional statements when the conclusion of one is the hypothesis of the other.

A syllogism is **a systematic representation of a single logical inference**. It has three parts: a major premise, a minor premise, and a conclusion. The parts are defined this way: The major premise contains a term from the predicate of the conclusion.

figure, in logic, the classification of syllogisms **according to the arrangement of the middle term**, namely, the term (subject or predicate of a proposition) that occurs in both premises but not in the conclusion.

- Major premise.
- Minor premise.
- Conclusion.

- Read the question thoroughly.
- Start drawing the Venn diagram.
- Follow the sequence of the question while drawing.
- Analyse the conclusion from the Venn diagram.
- Check for other alternative solutions at the end.

A syllogism is **an argument with two premisses leading to a conclusion**. Each proposition in the argument has two terms, and in the course of the argument each term occurs twice, but never twice in the same proposition.

Thus every syllogism of the form AAA–2 vio- lates the rule that the middle term must be distributed in at least one premise, thereby committing **the fallacy of the undistributed middle**.

The Structure of Syllogism A categorical syllogism is **an argument consisting of exactly three categorical propositions (two premises and a conclusion) in which there appear a total of exactly three categorical terms**, each of which is used exactly twice.

In classical logic, a hypothetical syllogism is **a valid argument form**, a syllogism with a conditional statement for one or both of its premises.

The Law of Detachment states **that in order to manifest our desires, we must release attachment to the outcome itself as well as the path we might take to get there**. … “The spiritual Law of Detachment is about trust and surrender rather than control,” Swart notes.

There are three laws upon which all logic is based, and they’re attributed to Aristotle. These laws are **the law of identity, law of non-contradiction, and law of the excluded middle**. According to the law of identity, if a statement is true, then it must be true.

- One example of incorrect syllogism is the notion that all animals have four legs because dogs are animals and all dogs have four legs.
- If you believe that all water is safe to drink just because water from a bottle is safe to drink, you have used syllogism to reach a wrong conclusion.

A premise is **a proposition upon which an argument is based or from which a conclusion is drawn**. … Merriam-Webster gives this example of a major and minor premise (and conclusion): “All mammals are warmblooded [major premise]; whales are mammals [minor premise]; therefore, whales are warmblooded [conclusion].”

“A syllogism is **valid (or logical) when its conclusion follows from its premises**. … To be sound, a syllogism must be both valid and true. However, a syllogism may be valid without being true or true without being valid.”

Law of Syllogism: allows you to state a conclusion from 2 true statements when the conclusion of one statement is **the hypothesis of the other statement**. If p q and q r are true statements, then p r is a true statement. If a number is prime, then it does not have repeated factors.

The textbooks tell us that there are **256 syllogisms** altogether. Most authors say that 24 of these are valid; some say 19, some 15. In the standard list of 24 valid syllogisms, fifteen are ‘fundamental’, four are ‘strengthened’ and five are ‘weakened’.

According to the general rules of the syllogism, we are left with **eleven moods**: AAA, AAI, AEE, AEO, AII, AOO, EAE, EAO, EIO, IAI, OAO.

Mixed syllogisms are of three kinds—**Hypothetical-Categorical, Disjunctive- Categorical, Dilemma**.

The form of the syllogism is **named by listing the mood first, then the figure**. · Mood depends upon the type of propositions ( A, E, I or O) It is a list of the types beginning with the major premise and ending with the conclusion. · Figure depends on the arrangement of the middle terms in the proposition.
