The mathematical origins of nineteenth-century algebra of logic

In Leila Haaparanta (ed.), The Development of Modern Logic. Oxford University Press. pp. 159 (2009)
Abstract
This chapter discusses the complex conditions for the emergence of 19th-century symbolic logic. The main scope will be on the mathematical motives leading to the interest in logic; the philosophical context will be dealt with only in passing. The main object of study will be the algebra of logic in its British and German versions. Special emphasis will be laid on the systems of George Boole and above all of his German follower Ernst Schröder.
