Abstract:

"This treatise reverts to Aristotle, and is largely a restatement of his theory as colored by filtration through mediaeval mind. "Since his day," says Kant, "Logic has taken no backward step, and also up to this time it has been able to take no step forward, and thus, to all appearance, is concluded and perfected." A fiery trial for ages has neither consumed it nor refined it, and it is likely to remain perpetually an accepted part of the sum of human knowledge. Hence, in treating the old Logic, I have aimed at clear, correct, and complete statement rather than at any modification. Of late years many innovations have been proposed, some of which are examined and criticized. Whenever in the treatise a new view is offered, it is distinctly indicated as such. A great number and variety of examples, both for illustration and for praxis, mitigating somewhat the severity of the subject, seemed to me desirable. They have been collected from every available source; some are ancient, some modern, many are newly invented"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
