The laws of thought by
George Boole(
Book
)
28 editions published between 1854 and 2003 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This groundbreaking work on logic by the brilliant nineteenthcentury English mathematician George Boole (18151864) remains influential to this day. Boole's major contribution was to demonstrate conclusively that the symbolic expressions of algebra could be adapted to convey the fundamental principles and operations of logic, which hitherto had been expressed only in words. Boole was thus the founder of today's science of symbolic logic."Jacket

George Boole : selected manuscripts on logic and its philosophy by
George Boole(
Book
)
9 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and German and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
George Boole (18151864) is well known to mathematicians for his research and textbooks on the calculus, but his name has spread worldwide for his innovations in symbolic logic and the development and applications made since his day. The utility of "Boolean algebra" in computing has greatly increased curiosity in the nature and extent of his achievements. His work is most accessible in his two books on logic, "A mathematical analysis of logic" (1947) and "An investigation of the laws of thought" (1954). But at various times he wrote manuscript essays, especially after the publication of the second book; several were intended for a nontechnical work, "The Philosophy of logic", which he was not able to complete. This volume contains an edited selection which not only relates them to Boole's publications and the historical context of his time, but also describes their strange history of family, followers and scholars have treid to confect an edition. The book will appeal to logicians, mathematicians and philosophers, and those interested in the histories of the corresponding subjects; and also students of the early Victorian Britain in which they were written
