Notes 4.1 Categorical Propositions -- a proposition/statement that relates two classes (categories —hence the name ‘categorical props’). Categories related by subject term and predicate term . Categorical propositions assert that either all or part of the class denoted by the subject term is included or excluded from the class denoted by the predicate term. Atkins dieters avoid carbohydrates . Snowmobiles do not belong in Yellowstone National Park . Michael Moore shoots documentaries . No songs by Wilco are really good songs . All UA students above 21 love Dickson Street . Since categorical propositions essentially say that all or part of the class denoted by the subject term is included or excluded from the class denoted by the predicate term, there can therefore only be 4 types of categorical propositions: (1) those that assert that the whole subject class is included in the predicate class (2) those that assert that part of the subject class is included in the predicate class (3) those that assert that the whole subject class is excluded from the predicate class
