The theory of political economy by William Stanley Jevons( Book )

321 editions published between 1871 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 1,767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1871, The Theory of Political Economy was the first text to introduce the concept of utility theory into economics and the use of calculus as a way to simplify and present economic problems. In this classic work Jevons re-formulated the central problem of economics as one of how to maximise overall utility with a set amount of means of production. Utility expressed as a function became the basis of the a new theory of value which substantially differs from the classical political economists' labour theory of value. Drawing on his roots in the natural sciences Jevons revolutionised the tools and methods associated with political economy and kick-started the metamorphosis of the discipline. A century after its original publication The Theory of Political Economy continues to exert its influence in the teaching and study of modern economics. This re-issued classic contains a new introduction by Dr Harro Maas who explores the rich contextual history of Jevons and the Theory and the continued influence it has on modern day economics

Elementary lessons in logic: deductive and inductive by William Stanley Jevons( Book )

223 editions published between 1870 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In preparing these Lessons I have attempted to show that Logic, even in its traditional form, can be made a highly useful subject of study, and a powerful means of mental exercise. With this view I have avoided the use of superfluous technical terms, and have abstained from entering into questions of a purely speculative or metaphysical character. For the puerile illustrations too often found in works on Logic I have generally substituted examples drawn from the distinct objects and ideas treated in the natural and experimental sciences; and in this and other respects have aimed at rendering these Lessons a suitable companion to a series of science school books. These Lessons I trust will introduce to the science many who have not leisure or inclination to read more elaborate treatises, and many who would not be attracted by the numerous but somewhat dry and brief compendiums published in past years. It is desirable that Lessons in Logic should be made the basis of many exercises, and for this purpose I have supplied abundance of questions and examples at the end of the book, some of which are selected from the examination papers of the Oxford"--Preface.

The principles of science; a treatise on logic and scientific method by William Stanley Jevons( Book )

110 editions published between 1874 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I endeavor to show that hypothetical anticipation of nature is an essential part of inductive inquiry, and that it is the Newtonian method of deductive reasoning combined with elaborate experimental verification, which has led to all the great triumphs of scientific research. In attempting to give an explanation of this view of Scientific Method, I discuss such topics as logic, the theory of probability, the phenomena of nature, observation, experimentation, hypothesis, and inference."
