- n. In logic, the mnemonic name of a mood of syllogism in the second figure, having a universal affirmative major premise, a particular negative minor, and a particular negative conclusion: as, Every true patriot is a friend to religion; some great statesmen are not friends to religion; therefore, some great statesmen are not true patriots. Five of the six letters that compose the word are significant. B means that it is to be reduced to barbara; a, that the major premise is universal affirmative; o, that the minor premise is particular negative; c, that the syllogism is to be reduced per impossibile (see
reduction); and o, that the conclusion is particular negative. See mood. Also spelled baroko.
