Transitivity  Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments  
Transitivity: here, we are concerned with the property of relations to be able to continue in the sense that if an a is in relation to a b and b is in relation to a c then a is in the same relation to c. Transitivity in sets means that an element of a subset is at the same time an element of the set containing this subset, or a subset M1 of a subset M2 is also a subset of the M2 containing set M3. See also relations. _____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
