But again, a disjunctive proposition may be stated as a series of hypotheticals. Take the disjunctive alternative proposition: A is either B. or C. , in which neither of the alternatives would by its affirmation necessarily exclude the other), it may be stated as follows: If A is not B, it is C; If A is not C, it is B. , in which the affirmation of one alternative excludes the other), it may be stated as follows: If A is B, it is not C; If A is C, it is not B.

P. 192. ---In this class, it is suggested, all the types reduce to simple categorical form. For first, a hypothetical judgment can be stated as a categorical: If A is B, it is C, may be stated in the form, A that is B is C. In this case, it would then appear that a hypothetical judgment is already included as a derivative from the categorical. But this reduction seems to me to be invalid for the following reasons: (i) The notion or idea of a qualification of the subject A in the manner which appears in the second proposition would not have arisen if the mind possessed the category of existence or substance alone; for the attribution of such a limitation implies an understanding of the relation between ground and consequent such as appears most clearly in the hypothetical judgment.
