Ernst SchrÃ¶der thought that Leibniz's ideal of a logical calculus had been brought to perfection by George Boole

George Boole took Leibniz's binary code and created Boolean algebra, and John von Neumann took Boolean algebra and created the digital computer.

George Boole was the first to present logic as a mathematical theory in algebraic style.

It was 150 years ago that George Boole published his literary classic The Laws of Thought, wherein he devised a mathematical language for dealing with mental machinations of logic.

George Boole (181564) published The Laws of Thought, an expansion of his 1847 work, The Mathematical Analysis of Logic, which marked the beginning of symbolic logic, that is, the attempt to express the laws of thought in algebraic symbols.

George Boole invented a language to write symbolic models.

One of the most profound mathematicians and thinkers of our time, the late George Boole, when reflecting on the precise and almost mathematical character of the laws of right thinking as compared with the exceedingly perplexing though perhaps equally determinate laws of actual and fallible thinking, was led to another of those points of view from which Science seems to look out into a region beyond her own domain.
