1.8.2 Aristotelian logic: Assertic
syllogismsModel the Aristotelian assertic syllogisms using modern notation. This section shows that the Aristotelian assertic syllogisms can be proven with our axioms of logic, and also provides generally useful theorems.
In antiquity Aristotelian logic and Stoic logic
(see mpto1 1523) were the leading logical systems.
Aristotelian logic became the leading system in medieval Europe;
this section models this system (including later refinements to it).
Aristotle defined syllogisms very generally
("a discourse in which certain (specific) things having been supposed,
something different from the things supposed results of necessity
because these things are so")
Aristotle,
"There is a surprising amount of scholarly debate
about how best to formalize Aristotle's syllogisms..." according to
We instead translate each Aristotelian syllogism into an inference rule,
and each rule is defined using standard predicate logic notation and
predicates. The predicates are represented by wff variables
that may depend on the quantified variable .
Our translation is essentially identical to the one
use in Rini page 18, Table 2 "Non-Modal Syllogisms in
Lower Predicate Calculus (LPC)", which uses
standard predicate logic with predicates. Rini states,
"the crucial point is that we capture the meaning Aristotle intends,
and the method by which we represent that meaning is less important."
There are two differences: we make the existence criteria explicit, and
we use , , and in the order they
appear
(a common Metamath convention).
Patzig also uses standard predicate logic notation and predicates
(though he interprets them as conditional propositions, not as
inference rules); see
Gunther Patzig, Expressions of the form "no is " are consistently translated as . These can also be expressed as , per alinexa 1565. We translate "all is " to , "some is " to , and "some is not " to . It is traditional to use the singular verb "is", not the plural verb "are", in the generic expressions. By convention the major premise is listed first. In traditional Aristotelian syllogisms the predicates have a restricted form ("x is a ..."); those predicates could be modeled in modern notation by constructs such as , , or . Here we use wff variables instead of specialized restricted forms. This generalization makes the syllogisms more useful in more circumstances. In addition, these expressions make it clearer that the syllogisms of Aristolean logic are the forerunners of predicate calculus. If we used restricted forms like instead, we would not only unnecessarily limit their use, but we would also need to use set and class axioms, making their relationship to predicate calculus less clear.
There are some widespread misconceptions about the existential
assumptions made by Aristotle (aka "existential import").
Aristotle was not trying to develop something exactly corresponding
to modern logic. Aristotle devised "a companion-logic for science.
He relegates fictions like fairy godmothers and mermaids and unicorns to
the realms of poetry and literature. In his mind, they exist outside the
ambit of science. This is why he leaves no room for such non-existent
entities in his logic. This is a thoughtful choice, not an inadvertent
omission. Technically, Aristotelian science is a search for definitions,
where a definition is "a phrase signifying a thing's essence."
(Topics, I.5.102a37, Pickard-Cambridge.)...
Because non-existent entities cannot be anything, they do not, in
Aristotle's mind, possess an essence... This is why he leaves
no place for fictional entities like goat-stags (or unicorns)."

These are only the Aristotelean logic is essentially the forerunner of predicate calculus (as well as set theory since it discusses membership in groups), while Stoic logic is essentially the forerunner of propositional calculus. | ||

Theorem | barbara 2241 | "Barbara", one of the fundamental syllogisms of Aristotelian logic. All is , and all is , therefore all is . (In Aristotelian notation, AAA-1: MaP and SaM therefore SaP.) For example, given "All men are mortal" and "Socrates is a man", we can prove "Socrates is mortal". If H is the set of men, M is the set of mortal beings, and S is Socrates, these word phrases can be represented as (all men are mortal) and (Socrates is a man) therefore (Socrates is mortal). Russell and Whitehead note that the "syllogism in Barbara is derived..." from syl 15. (quote after Theorem *2.06 of [WhiteheadRussell] p. 101). Most of the proof is in alsyl 1602. There are a legion of sources for Barbara, including http://www.friesian.com/aristotl.htm, http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/aristotle-logic/, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syllogism.

PART 2 ZF (ZERMELO-FRAENKEL) SET
THEORYSet theory uses the formalism of propositional and predicate calculus to assert properties of arbitrary mathematical objects called "sets." A set can be contained in another set, and this relationship is indicated by the symbol. Starting with the simplest mathematical object, called the empty set, set theory builds up more and more complex structures whose existence follows from the axioms, eventually resulting in extremely complicated sets that we identify with the real numbers and other familiar mathematical objects. A simplistic concept of sets, sometimes called "naive set theory", is vulnerable to a paradox called "Russell's paradox" (ru 2991), a discovery that revolutionized the foundations of mathematics and logic. Russell's Paradox spawned the development of set theories that countered the paradox, including the ZF set theory that is most widely used and is defined here. Except for Extensionality, the axioms basically say, "given an arbitrary set x (and, in the cases of Replacement and Regularity, provided that an antecedent is satisfied), there exists another set y based on or constructed from it, with the stated properties." (The axiom of Extensionality can also be restated this way as shown by axext2 2266.) The individual axiom links provide more detailed descriptions. We derive the redundant ZF axioms of Separation, Null Set, and Pairing from the others as theorems. | ||

2.1 ZF Set Theory - start with the Axiom of
Extensionality | ||

2.1.1 Introduce the Axiom of
Extensionality | ||

Axiom | ax-ext 2265* |
Axiom of Extensionality. An axiom of Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory. It
states that two sets are identical if they contain the same elements.
Axiom Ext of [BellMachover] p.
461.
Set theory can also be formulated with a To use the above "equality-free" version of Extensionality with Metamath's logical axioms, we would rewrite ax-8 1644 through ax-16 2086 with equality expanded according to the above definition. Some of those axioms could be proved from set theory and would be redundant. Not all of them are redundant, since our axioms of predicate calculus make essential use of equality for the proper substitution that is a primitive notion in traditional predicate calculus. A study of such an axiomatization would be an interesting project for someone exploring the foundations of logic.
It is important to understand that strictly speaking, all of our set
theory axioms are really schemes that represent an infinite number of
actual axioms. This is inherent in the design of Metamath
("metavariable math"), which manipulates only metavariables.
For
example, the metavariable in ax-ext 2265 can represent any actual
variable |

Theorem | axext2 2266* | The Axiom of Extensionality (ax-ext 2265) restated so that it postulates the existence of a set given two arbitrary sets and . This way to express it follows the general idea of the other ZFC axioms, which is to postulate the existence of sets given other sets. (Contributed by NM, 28-Sep-2003.) |

Theorem | axext3 2267* | A generalization of the Axiom of Extensionality in which and need not be distinct. (Contributed by NM, 15-Sep-1993.) (Proof shortened by Andrew Salmon, 12-Aug-2011.) |

Theorem | axext4 2268* | A bidirectional version of Extensionality. Although this theorem "looks" like it is just a definition of equality, it requires the Axiom of Extensionality for its proof under our axiomatization. See the comments for ax-ext 2265 and df-cleq 2277. (Contributed by NM, 14-Nov-2008.) |

Theorem | bm1.1 2269* | Any set defined by a property is the only set defined by that property. Theorem 1.1 of [BellMachover] p. 462. (Contributed by NM, 30-Jun-1994.) |

2.1.2 Class abstractions (a.k.a. class
builders) | ||

Syntax | cab 2270 | Introduce the class builder or class abstraction notation ("the class of sets such that is true"). Our class variables , , etc. range over class builders (implicitly in the case of defined class terms such as df-nul 3457). Note that a set variable can be expressed as a class builder per theorem cvjust 2279, justifying the assignment of set variables to class variables via the use of cv 1622. |

Definition | df-clab 2271 |
Define class abstraction notation (so-called by Quine), also called a
"class builder" in the literature. and need not be distinct.
Definition 2.1 of [Quine] p. 16.
Typically, will
have as a
free variable, and " " is read "the class of all sets
such that is true." We do not define in
isolation but only as part of an expression that extends or
"overloads"
the
relationship.
This is our first use of the symbol to connect classes instead of sets. The syntax definition wcel 1685, which extends or "overloads" the wel 1686 definition connecting set variables, requires that both sides of be a class. In df-cleq 2277 and df-clel 2280, we introduce a new kind of variable (class variable) that can substituted with expressions such as . In the present definition, the on the left-hand side is a set variable. Syntax definition cv 1622 allows us to substitute a set variable for a class variable: all sets are classes by cvjust 2279 (but not necessarily vice-versa). For a full description of how classes are introduced and how to recover the primitive language, see the discussion in Quine (and under abeq2 2389 for a quick overview). Because class variables can be substituted with compound expressions and set variables cannot, it is often useful to convert a theorem containing a free set variable to a more general version with a class variable. This is done with theorems such as vtoclg 2844 which is used, for example, to convert elirrv 7307 to elirr 7308. This is called the "axiom of class comprehension" by [Levy] p. 338, who treats the theory of classes as an extralogical extension to our logic and set theory axioms. He calls the construction a "class term". For a general discussion of the theory of classes, see http://us.metamath.org/mpegif/mmset.html#class. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) |

Theorem | abid 2272 | Simplification of class abstraction notation when the free and bound variables are identical. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) |

Theorem | hbab1 2273* | Bound-variable hypothesis builder for a class abstraction. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) |

Theorem | nfsab1 2274* | Bound-variable hypothesis builder for a class abstraction. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 11-Aug-2016.) |

Theorem | hbab 2275* | Bound-variable hypothesis builder for a class abstraction. (Contributed by NM, 1-Mar-1995.) |

Theorem | nfsab 2276* | Bound-variable hypothesis builder for a class abstraction. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 11-Aug-2016.) |

Definition | df-cleq 2277* |
Define the equality connective between classes. Definition 2.7 of
[Quine] p. 18. Also Definition 4.5 of
[TakeutiZaring] p. 13; Chapter 4
provides its justification and methods for eliminating it. Note that
its elimination will not necessarily result in a single wff in the
original language but possibly a "scheme" of wffs.
This is an example of a somewhat "risky" definition, meaning that it has a more complex than usual soundness justification (outside of Metamath), because it "overloads" or reuses the existing equality symbol rather than introducing a new symbol. This allows us to make statements that may not hold for the original symbol. For example, it permits us to deduce , which is not a theorem of logic but rather presupposes the Axiom of Extensionality (see theorem axext4 2268). We therefore include this axiom as a hypothesis, so that the use of Extensionality is properly indicated.
We could avoid this complication by introducing a new symbol, say
= However, to conform to literature usage, we retain this overloaded definition. This also makes some proofs shorter and probably easier to read, without the constant switching between two kinds of equality. See also comments under df-clab 2271, df-clel 2280, and abeq2 2389. In the form of dfcleq 2278, this is called the "axiom of extensionality" by [Levy] p. 338, who treats the theory of classes as an extralogical extension to our logic and set theory axioms. For a general discussion of the theory of classes, see http://us.metamath.org/mpegif/mmset.html#class. (Contributed by NM, 15-Sep-1993.) |

Theorem | dfcleq 2278* | The same as df-cleq 2277 with the hypothesis removed using the Axiom of Extensionality ax-ext 2265. (Contributed by NM, 15-Sep-1993.) |

Theorem | cvjust 2279* | Every set is a class. Proposition 4.9 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 13. This theorem shows that a set variable can be expressed as a class abstraction. This provides a motivation for the class syntax construction cv 1622, which allows us to substitute a set variable for a class variable. See also cab 2270 and df-clab 2271. Note that this is not a rigorous justification, because cv 1622 is used as part of the proof of this theorem, but a careful argument can be made outside of the formalism of Metamath, for example as is done in Chapter 4 of Takeuti and Zaring. See also the discussion under the definition of class in [Jech] p. 4 showing that "Every set can be considered to be a class." (Contributed by NM, 7-Nov-2006.) |

Definition | df-clel 2280* |
Define the membership connective between classes. Theorem 6.3 of
[Quine] p. 41, or Proposition 4.6 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 13, which we
adopt as a definition. See these references for its metalogical
justification. Note that like df-cleq 2277 it extends or "overloads" the
use of the existing membership symbol, but unlike df-cleq 2277 it does not
strengthen the set of valid wffs of logic when the class variables are
replaced with set variables (see cleljust 1959), so we don't include any
set theory axiom as a hypothesis. See also comments about the syntax
under df-clab 2271. Alternate definitions of
(but that require
either or to be a set) are shown by
clel2 2905, clel3 2907, and
clel4 2908.
This is called the "axiom of membership" by [Levy] p. 338, who treats the theory of classes as an extralogical extension to our logic and set theory axioms. For a general discussion of the theory of classes, see http://us.metamath.org/mpegif/mmset.html#class. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.) |
