Existential instantiation is a rule of inference of predicate logic that allows one to infer from a formula quantified with the Existential quantifer a formula in which the bound variable is freed and the variable is replaced with a new variable or constant. In symbols:

\exists x \phi (x) \vdash \phi (a)


  • The variable or constant replacing the bound variable must be a new variable or constant.
