Donde hay humo hay fuego. Así es esto. ) Por lo tanto, así. ) Cuando los lógicos indios ven en el tercer miembro una premisa universal, el cuarto es interpretado como miembro de un proceso deductivo: es la aplicación, al caso particular de la colina, de lo afirmado para el caso general en el tercer miembro. De ahí que algunos, actualmente, llamen a este miembro «raciocinio» o simplemente «deducción». Y a partir del tercer miembro considerado premisa universal tendríamos: Donde hay humo hay fuego; en la colina hay humo; por lo tanto en la colina hay fuego.
Y así, sucesivamente, dado el ejemplo, «como en una cocina», preguntar: «¿El hecho de que en la cocina haya humo y fuego significa que siempre se dan juntos el humo y el fuego? ».

Sólo entonces la conclusión es conocimiento. Lo que en otros se desea provocar, con el procedimiento silogístico, es el reconocimiento de la concomitancia invariable, forzosa, entre dos términos. Uno de esos términos es llamado razón del otro porque este otro no puede darse sin él.
