Subcontrary

Subcontrary Sub*con"tra*ry, a. 1. Contrary in an inferior degree. 2. (Geom.) Having, or being in, a contrary order; -- said of a section of an oblique cone having a circular base made by a plane not parallel to the base, but so inclined to the axis that the section is a circle; applied also to two similar triangles when so placed as to have a common angle at the vertex, the opposite sides not being parallel. --Brande & C. 3. (Logic) Denoting the relation of opposition between the particular affirmative and particular negative. Of these both may be true and only one can be false.

- cases of the incorrect application of the contrary, subcontrary and subalternation relations are syllogistic fallacies called illicit

- that the opposites of contraries (which the medievals called subcontraries, subcontrariae) can both be true, but they cannot both be false.

- in mathematics , the harmonic mean (sometimes called the subcontrary mean) is one of several kinds of average . typically, it is

- similarly, the subcontrary relationship is dissolved between the existential statements 'some s is p' and 'some s is not p'. the former is

- as the subcontrary i contradicts e and the subcontrary o contradicts a, the logical proposition apprehending partial quantity can be

- proposition six proves the existence an oblique cylinder of the parallel circular sections subcontrary to the series of which the bases

- jointly true a related objection is that 'negation' in paraconsistent logic is not really negation ; it is merely a subcontrary -forming operator
