Aristotle - The Organon - index for ANALYTICA POSTERIORA Book 1 Part 12

There are distinctively scientific questions

  
Paragraph 1 If a syllogistic question is equivalent to a proposition embodying one of the two sides of a contradiction, and if each science has its peculiar propositions from which its peculiar conclusion is developed, then there is such a thing as a distinctively scientific question, and it is the interrogative form of the premisses from which the 'appropriate' conclusion of each science is developed.
Paragraph 2 Since there are 'geometrical' questions, does it follow that there are also distinctively 'ungeometrical' questions?
Paragraph 3 If a proof has an inductive minor premiss, one should not bring an 'objection' against it.
Paragraph 4 Reciprocation of premisses and conclusion is more frequent in mathematics, because mathematics takes definitions, but never an accident, for its premisses - a second characteristic distinguishing mathematical reasoning from dialectical disputations.
Paragraph 5 A science expands not by the interposition of fresh middle terms, but by the apposition of fresh extreme terms.
