Syllogism Checker The Syllogism Checker is a software application that can be used over the internet on a webpage or as a standalone desktop application. The Checker allows the user to select any one of the 256 possible categorical syllogisms and then it tells the user both verbally and visually (by Venn diagrams) whether the selected syllogism is valid. It's similar to the many other syllogism checkers freely available over the internet except that it's more versatile and customizeable.
