abdicative ‎(plural abdicatives)

  1. (logic) A reasoning from the negative
    • 1987, David Londey, The Logic of Apuleius:
      The fourth mood is that which brings together directly a particular abdicative from a particular dedicative and a universal abdicative, e.g., Some just thing is honourable, no honourable thing is base, therefore some just thing is not base.
