Bolzano's Logical System

Ettore Casari

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, the Bolzanian system of inferences, i.e. of propositions asserting the subsistence of the relation of derivability among other propositions, is developed in detail. A particularly interesting and noteworthy trait of the method adopted by Bolzano in this treatment is that this method is not an axiomatic one, but proceeds as the production of a catalogue, ordered according to the old principle: from the simpler to the more complex.

Keywords:   inference, relation of derivability, catalogue, axiomatic method
