Example text

Similarly with the others, 'necessary' and 'impossible'. For as in the previous examples 'to be' and 'not to be' are additions, while the actual things that are subjects are white and man, so here 'to be' serves as subject, while 'to be possible' and 'to be admissible' are additions-these determining the possible and not possible in the case of 'to be', just as in the previous cases 'to be' and 'not to be' determine the true. The negation of 'possible not to be' is 'not possible not to be'. This is why 'possible to be' and 'possible not to be' may be thought actually to follow from one another.

For if Socrates exists one will be true and one false, but if he does not both will be false; neither 'Socrates is sick' nor 'Socrates is well' will be true if Socrates himself does not exist at all. As for possession and privation, if he does not exist at all neither is true, while not always one or the other is true if he does. For 'Socrates has sight' is opposed to 'Socrates is blind' as possession to privation; and if he exists it is not necessary for one or the other to be true or false (since until the time when it is natural for him to have it both are false), while if Socrates does not exist at all then again both are false, both 'he has sight' and 'he is blind'.

So it must sometimes be of a universal that one states that something holds or does not, sometimes of a particular. Now if one states universally of a universal that something holds or does not, there will be contrary statements (examples of what 1 mean by 'stating universally of a universal' are: every man is white-no man is white). But when one states something of a universal but not universally, the statements are not contrary (though what is being revealed may be contrary). Examples of what 1 mean by 'stating of a universal not universally' are: a man is white-a man is not white; man is a universal but it is not used universally in the statement (for 'every' does not signify the universal but that it is taken universally).
