A Short History of Philosophy





Demonstration. That absolute proof, which shows not only that a thing is so, but that it cannot be otherwise. It is of course confined to necessary matter, which belongs only to mathematics and logic.


The laws and properties of pure space in geometry are such, so the relations of numbers and abstract quantity in algebra, and those between premisses and their conclusion in logic. A syllogism is a demonstration, not indeed of the truth of the conclusion, but of its necessarily following from the premisses. All other proof amounts but to probability, although the maximum of probability will always produce conviction of that on behalf of which it is urged.
