First published in 1854, this is the classic treatise by British mathematician and philosopher GEORGE BOOLE (18151864) in which he develops a system for representing logic in algebraic form. Expanding on ideas first presented in his 1847 pamphlet The Mathematical Analysis of Logic, Boolefor whom the mathematical term boolean was coineddiscusses: derivation of his laws principles of symbolic reasoning conditions of a perfect method general method in probabilities Aristotelian logic and more.

Book is very neat and clean. George Boole is genius of logic(after Frege, Aristotle and Russell) As a database programmer who relies heavily on Boolean logic I much appreciated a look behind the curtains of George Boole's impressive work. 2 people found this helpful.
