The system of modern logic we now begin to explore is in some ways less elegant than analytical syllogistics, but it is more powerful. The syllogism. The Prior Analytics represents the first formal study of logic, where logic is understood as the study of arguments. An argument is a series of true or false statements which lead to a true or false conclusion.

The algebra of logic, as an explicit algebraic system showing the underlying mathematical structure of logic, was introduced by George Boole (–) in his book The Mathematical Analysis of Logic (). The methodology initiated by Boole was successfully continued in the 19 th century in the work of William Stanley Jevons (–), Charles Sanders Peirce (–), Ernst Cited by: 4.

For another, one mustn't confuse epistemic attributes and ontic properties.
