Product Description

Richard Whately (1787-1863 was an English rhetorician, logician, economist, and theologian who also served as the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin.
Whately was the first English logician to correct a mistaken conception of the nature and function of logic that had dominated English thought since the time of Locke and had led to the sterility of that discipline in England for over 150 years. Whately’s work laid the philosophical foundations for the revolutionary developments in logic (notably Boole’s algebra of logic) that took place in England during the nineteenth century.
