Catalogue Note

"This was Boole's first work of logic, in the introduction to which he first refuted W. Hamilton's claim that logic was a part of philosophy and that no mathematician could possibly contribute anything to this field. It was this volume that began the revolution that led to the development of mathematical logic. In recent times, Boolean logic has found widespread use in the design of digital computers and communications systems" (Tomash & Williams).
