 SEP: The Traditional Square of Opposition
The point of this entry is to trace its history from the vantage point of the end of the twentieth century, along with closely related doctrines bearing on empty terms.
The square of opposition is a group of theses embodied in a diagram.
Its doctrine includes that of the square of opposition, but the discussion of the O form is so vague that nobody could pin down its exact truth conditions, and there is certainly no awareness indicated of problems of existential import.

 Square of Opposition [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
The square of opposition is a chart that was introduced within classical (categorical) logic to represent the logical relationships holding between certain propositions in virtue of their form.
Without the traditional presuppositions of "existential import", i.e., the supposition that all categories have at least one member, then only the contradictory relation holds.
On what is sometimes called the "modern square of opposition" (as opposed to the traditional square of opposition sketched above) the lines for contraries, subcontraries and subalternation are erased, leaving only the diagonal lines for the contradictory relation.
