Excerpt

The work of which this is an English translation appeared originally in French as Précis de logique mathématique. In 1954 Dr. Albert Menne brought out a revised and somewhat enlarged edition in German (Grundriss der Logistik, F. Schoningh, Paderborn). In making my translation I have used both editions. For the most part I have followed the original French edition, since I thought there was some advantage in keeping the work as short as possible. However, I have included the more extensive historical notes of Dr. Menne, his bibliography, and the two sections on modal logic and the syntactical categories (§ 25 and 27), which were not in the original. I have endeavored to correct the typographical errors that appeared in the original editions and have made a few additions to the bibliography.

In making the translation I have profited more than words can tell from the ever-generous help of Fr. Bocheński while he was teaching at the University of Notre Dame during 1955-56.
