Aristotelian logic

Your simple Aristotelian logic is not going to provide a clear answer because they are in both classes to a degree.

the syllogistic logic of Aristotle as developed in the Middle Ages as traditional or term logic

(made up of statements in one of four forms: "All A’s are B’s", "No A’s are B’s", "Some A’s are B’s", or "Some A’s are not B’s" such that conclusions can be proven based on premises; though proof of premises is beyond the logical system)

Some refer to some many later developments in logic as modern or symbolic logic. Another form of logic advanced by John Stuart Mill uses an inductive (rather than deductive) logic based on probabilities.
