Book Description:

George Boole, the father of Boolean algebra, published An Investigation of the Laws of Thought, a seminal work on algebraic logic, in 1854. In this investigation of the fundamental laws of human reasoning, Boole uses the symbolic language of mathematics to examine the nature of the human mind.

About the Author:

George Boole (2 November 1815 – 8 December 1864) was an English mathematician, philosopher and logician. He worked in the fields of differential equations and algebraic logic, and is now best known as the author of The Laws of Thought. Boole said, ‘...no general method for the solution of questions in the theory of probabilities can be established which does not explicitly recognise ... those universal laws of thought which are the basis of all reasoning.’
