Aristotle - The Organon - index for ANALYTICA PRIORIA Book 2 Part 1

The reason common to all syllogisms

Paragraph 1 We have already explained the number of the figures, the character and number of the premisses, when and how a syllogism is formed;
Paragraph 2 This then is the reason common to all syllogisms whether universal or particular.
Paragraph 3 But in particular syllogisms there will be no necessity of inferring what is subordinate to the conclusion (for a syllogism does not result when this premiss is particular), but whatever is subordinate to the middle term may be inferred, not however through the syllogism, e.g. if A belongs to all B and B to some C.
