Sample text

It is this principle—this synthetic a priori principle as it may be called—that explains how it is possible that an argument should have thetical variants. 27. Now if a form of statement is possible in which a proposition or propositions are introduced as propositions whose truth serves as a ground for asserting another proposition then a form of statement must be possible in which a proposition or propositions are introduced as propositions whose truth would serve as a ground for asserting another.

Thus in the singlepremissed argument (vii) Either Eliot or Yeats died before 1940 Therefore since Eliot did not die before 1940, Yeats did where the conclusion is what we shall call a thetical statement, we also have an argument with the same logical form as the disjunctive syllogism. It seems natural to call the conclusion here a thetical statement, because the antecedent is introduced as a thesis, as a proposition the speaker is positing the truth of rather than asserting outright.

A statement of this form is, so to speak, in thrall to the hypothetical variant of which it is to be seen as the conclusion.

How, then, are we to convey the argument form of a hypothetical variant of an argument when that form cannot be represented by an argument schema? The terms of the question itself suggest the answer. Since representation of the argument form by a schema is impossible, we have to resort to a description and this description must allude to the fact of the hypothetical variant’s being a variant of such and such a form of argument.
