A consequent is the second half of a hypothetical proposition. In the standard form of such a proposition, it is the part that follows "then". In an implication, if implies then is called the antecedent and is called the consequent. Examples: ⁕If P, then Q. Q is the consequent of this hypothetical proposition. ⁕If X is a mammal, then X is an animal. Here, "X is an animal" is the consequent. ⁕If computers can think, then they are alive. "They are alive" is the consequent. The consequent in a hypothetical proposition is not necessarily a consequence of the antecedent. ⁕If monkeys are purple, then fish speak Klingon. "Fish speak Klingon" is the consequent here, but intuitively is not a consequence of the claim made in the antecedent that "monkeys are purple".
