A syllogism is a type of logical argument in which a conclusion is drawn from two or more premises. A typical syllogism is as follows: Premise 1) All men are mortal. Premise 2) Socrates is a man. Conclusion 3) Socrates is mortal. Therefore, a syllogism is a type of deductive argument consisting of a major premise, a minor premise, and a conclusion.
