Chrysippus's Response to Diodorus's Master Argument

History and Philosophy of Logic 13 (2):133-148 (1992)
Abstract
Chrysippus claims that some propositions perish. including some true conditionals whose consequent is impossible and antecedent is possible, to which he appeals against Diodorus?s Master Argument.

But perished propositions are false, and Chrysippus?s conditionals are true when their antecedent and consequent arc possible, and false when their antecedent is possible and consequent impossible. The claim of the Master Argument that Chrysippus rejects, then, is stronger ihan usually supposed
