disamis

<logic, philosophy of science> name given by medieval logicians to a categorical syllogism whose standard form may be designated as IAI-3. Example: Some nutritious dinners are vegetarian delights, and all nutritious dinners are well-rounded meals, so some well-rounded meals are vegetarian delights. This is one of fifteen forms in which any syllogism is valid.
