By Marko Malink
Aristotle's modal syllogistic differs considerably from glossy modal good judgment. Malink considers the major to realizing the Aristotelian model to be the concept of predication mentioned within the Topics--specifically, its conception of predicables (definition, genus, differentia, proprium, and coincidence) and the 10 different types (substance, volume, caliber, and so on). The predicables introduce a contrast among crucial and nonessential predication. by contrast, the kinds distinguish among titanic and nonsubstantial predication. Malink builds on those insights in constructing a semantics for Aristotle's modal propositions, one who verifies the traditional philosopher's claims of the validity and invalidity of modal inferences. whereas it recognizes a few barriers of this reconstruction, Aristotle's Modal Syllogistic brims with daring rules, richly supported through shut readings of the Greek texts.
