"An Introduction to Boole's Algebra of Logic for Classes"

Boole's mysterious algebra of logic, based on the algebra of numbers and idempotent variables, has only been properly understood and justified in the last 40 years, more than a century after Boole published his most famous work, Laws of Thought. In this talk an elementary and natural development of Boole's system, from his partial algebra models up to his four main theorems, will be presented.
