Notes

First edition. An extended presentation of Peano's approach to mathematical logic, which he delivered at the first International Congress of Mathematicians in Zurich. Although this section of the Formulaire "is now of no more than historical interest... the credit for introducing the essential notions and symbols belongs to Peano, as Russell himself freely acknowledged. Peano used letters to denote propositions and propositional functions, devised notation - of which some are still in use... for the logical constants 'not', 'implies', 'implies for all x' etc., and pointed out the fundamental significance of the relation of class-membership." (Kneebone, Mathematical Logic and the Foundation of Mathematics, p. 146).
