The predicate of a categorical statement in Aristotle’s view refers to a universal, whereas its subject may refer to either a particular or a universal. The things explicitly counted as universals in the Prior Analytics cover a wide range: man, horse, swan, raven, animal, substance, wild, black, white, good, snow, stone, cloak, unit, line, number, wisdom, knowledge, ignorance, inanimate.
