Wright I 36
Practical Syllogism/Aristoteles/Wright, G. H.: The idea goes back to Aristotle. (Aristotle, Ethica Nicomachea, 1147a 25-30).
Wright: the conclusions to a correct interpretation is not easy to find. Aristotle himself deals with the subject very unsystematically and his examples are often confusing. One possibility of reconstruction is: the starting point or supremacy of syllogism mentions a desired object or an objective of action; the subordinate relates a certain action to this object as a means to an end, and
the conclusio is ultimately the use of this means to achieve that purpose. Just as in a theoretical conclusion the assertion of the premises necessarily leads to the concluding statement of the conclusion, so in a practical conclusion from the affirmation of the premises follows the corresponding action.
Anscombe: the practical conclusion is not a form of proof, but a form of justification which is of a different kind than evidence syllogism.
WrightVsAristotle: however, the peculiarities of practical syllogism and its relationship to theoretical justifications are complex and remain unclear.
