Overview

Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), born in Daresbury, Cheshire, is best known as the author of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass. His real name was Charles Dodgson. His father, the Reverend Charles Dodgson, instilled in his son a love of mathematics from an early age. Lewis studied at Oxford, and later taught there as a Mathematics Lecturer. He wrote several mathematics books, including Euclid and his Modern Rivals in which he defended the use of Euclid's Elements to teach geometry. His works on logic include this book: The Game of Logic (1887).

Like John Venn, Carroll was interested in using diagrams to analyze logical arguments. However, Carroll was mainly interested in using logic diagrams as a pedagogical tool. In fact, he wrote this book to teach logic to children.

This is one of many of Louis Carroll's mathematics & logic books. The translation leaves something to be desired, especially the first few pages, but overall it is a quality logic text.
