|Abstract||This book is intended for those who have no previous acquaintance with the topics of which it treats, and no more knowledge of mathematics than can be acquired at a primary school or even at Eton. It sets forth in elementary form the logical deﬁnition of number, the analysis of the notion of order, the modern doctrine of the inﬁnite, and the theory of descriptions and classes as symbolic ﬁctions. The more controversial and uncertain aspects of the subject are subordinated to those which can by now be regarded as acquired scientiﬁc knowledge. These are explained without the use of symbols, but in such a way as to give readers a general understanding of the methods and purposes of mathematical logic, which, it is hoped, will be of interest not only to those who wish to proceed to a more serious study of the subject, but also to that wider circle who feel a desire to know the bearings of this important modern science.|
