  • formal argument, syllogism, probative argument. GGD, The Sound of Two hands Clapping (p.206): In Indian logic, the favourite tool is the statement of proof, which is sometimes described by modern scholars as a syllogism. Others [i.e. Tillemans] have argued against the use of this term in Indian logic. The main point here is not that the term syllogism is necessarily inappropriate in the Indian context, but that an Indian argument is not identical to an ARItotelian syllogism. To avoid any confusion, I use the translations “proof statement” or “probative argument” (often abbreviated to “argument”). [Logic] [Epistemology] ▷GGD
