The Development of Logic as Reflected in the Fate of the Syllogism 1600–1900

History and Philosophy of Logic 21 (2):115-134 (2000)
Abstract
One way to determine the quality and pace of change in a science as it undergoes a major transition is to follow some feature of it which remains relatively stable throughout the process. Following the chosen item as it goes through reinterpretation permits conclusions to be drawn about the nature and scope of the broader change in question. In what follows, this device is applied to the change which took place in logic in the mid-nineteenth century. The feature chosen as the focal point is the categorical syllogism
