|Title:||Revealing the Truth Behind Russell’s Condemnation of Subject-Predicate Logic: Using Inferences with Relations to Compare the Logical Systems of Aristotle and Frege|
|Abstract:||This thesis compares the logical systems of Aristotle and Frege in light of Bertrand Russell’s criticism that Aristotelian subject-predicate logic does not accord relations their due weight. Although the criticism is unsupported as Russell offers it, after outlining the two systems, I conclude that his claim is true, and that by analyzing inferences with relations in Aristotelian and Fregean logic, we can see how subject-predicate logic is limited in being unable to capture relations fully.|
