Logic and Pragmatism features a number of the key writings of Giovanni
Vailati (1863–1909), the Italian mathematician and philosopher
renowned for his work in mechanics, geometry, logic, and
epistemology. The selections in this book—many of which are
available here for the first time in English—focus on Vailati's
significant contributions to the field of pragmatism. Accompanying
these pieces are introductory essays by the volume's editors that
outline the traits of Vailati's pragmatism and provide insights into
the scholar's life.
