    The First Five Pages

  • All common terms, including attributives, are arrived at by abstraction, but they are not therefore abstract terms.

    Deductive Logic

  • But those terms only are called attributives which can never be used except as predicates.

    Deductive Logic

  • Logic, however, also recognises as attributives terms which signify the non-possession of attributes.

    Deductive Logic

  • It must be carefully noticed that attributives are not names of attributes, but names of the things which possess the attributes, in virtue of our knowledge that they possess them.

    Deductive Logic

  • Since every term must be either abstract or concrete, it may be asked -- Are attributives abstract or concrete?

    Deductive Logic

  • This function of attributives as names in a secondary sense is exactly expressed by the grammatical term 'noun adjective.'
