Enthymeme’s and Syllogism

“One thing, indeed, is of itself immediately persuasive and credible, another because it appears to be proved through things that are credible.” Aristotle The Rhetoric

“For with respect to such things that either cannot in the past, or future or present time have a different subsistence, no one consults about these, conceiving that they thus subsist. For it is not possible for anyone to consult otherwise than this about things of this kind. But it is possible to syllogize and collect some things, indeed, from such particulars as have been previously syllogistically inferred. But others from things not inferred by syllogism. But require syllogism because they are not probable.” Aristotle The Rhetoric
