    The tragedy of man : dramatic poem 1908 by Imre Madách, PDF book

    An outline of the necessary laws of thought: (1860) PDF book by William Thomson

    An outline of the necessary laws of thought: (1860) PDF book by William Thomson a treatise on pure and applied logic The present work is an attempt to enlarge the science of Pure Logic, so that it may be adequate to the analysis of any act of reasoning.
