Jevons and Mill

Nature volume 42, pages 195196 | Download Citation



THE services of the late Prof. W. S. Jevons to logic were so eminent that considerable interest attaches to his minor writings on that subject, which are now collected into a volume. The earlier works, “Pure Logic” and “The Substitution of Similars,” which are contained in the first and larger part of the volume, possess, indeed, no more than a historic value. They expound his well-known theory of equational logic, but for all practical purposes they are replaced by the later and more interesting exposition which is contained in the “Principles of Science.”
