Aristotle’s logic contains only predications, and the only rules of inference it knows about are those of the arguments in the figures. ’ If there are no such true premises, then ‘A belongs to every B,’ though true, is absolutely undeducible, and thus indemonstrable in a purely logical or semantic sense. Similar results hold for the other forms of sentence, though they are more complicated because there are multiple ways of deducing each of them.
