### Syllogism Review

BARBARA (AAA)
• We reviewed this syllogism yesterday. Let’s make sure we understand.
• Step 1
• Turn the question into a conclusion
• Step 2
• Identify the subject and predicate
• Step 3
• Formulate the premises
• Step 4
• Identify a middle term (“a glue term” which binds the subject and predicate together)
BARBARA (AAA)
• The formula:
• M = middle term
• S = subject
• P = predicate
• a = the universal affirmative – expressed as “all _____ are” (in logic textbooks this will read: A belongs to all B, where A and B are swapped out for M, S, and P to fit the formula)
• MaP
