About this title


The algebra of logic was founded by George Boole (1815-1864); it was developed and perfected by Ernst Schroder (1841-1902) The fundamental laws of this calculus were devised to express the principles of reasoning, the laws of thought But this calculus may be considered from the purely formal point of view, which is that of mathematics, as an algebra based upon certain principles arbitrarily laid down It belongs to the realm of philosophy to decide whether, and in what measure, this calculus corresponds to the actual operations of the mind, and is adapted to translate or even to replace argument; we cannot discuss this point here The formal value of this calculus and its interest for the mathematician are absolutely independent of the interpretation given it and of the application which can be made of it to logical problems In short, we shall discuss it not as logic but as algebra.
