    Inferiors.

    Greetings,


    In chapter 7(The 5 Predicables) of Material Logic it is stated that:

    " An inferior, when used in the context of this discussion, is any universal concept that is used as a predicate that has more extension than the concept it is predicated of."

    It seems to me that according to the example given this definition is incorrect. In the example : All men are mortal

    The concept "men" which is the inferior has less extension than the concept "mortal" and yet according to the above definition "men" should have more extension.
    Is it me or is the definition incorrect?

    Hope to hear from you soon.
