|Premises: premises are assumptions within logical conclusions. From them follows a conclusion. Premises are written in a separate line. This makes them different from implications written in one line that contain an antecedent with one or more conditions and a post-sentence. See also syllogisms._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. |
Ex falso quodlibet/EFQ/Genz: can be used for false "proof":
E. g."If 2+2=5, then 2+3=6."
EFQ/Genz: is correct because the conclusion is maintained if we take away the false premise. This is because it does not depend on the validity or invalidity of the premise.
Premise/Genz: does not have to be made the basis of its conclusion, it can only. _____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
