ASSUMPTION

ASSUMPTION (assumo, to take for granted).—(1) The accepted premiss from which an inquiry or argument takes its start; (2) with emphasis on the prefix, it is used to designate the subordinate premiss, connected with the more general.

 

Of enunciations or premises, that which is taken universally is called the proposition, that which is less universal and comes into the mind secondarily is called the assumption (Trendelenburg, Notœ in Arist.).

The assumption is thus the minor proposition in a syllogism, the major being named in contrast the presumption. The terms more commonly in use are sumption, and subsumption.
