The Principles Of Mathematics
by Bertrand Russell
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
Number of pages: 579
Russell's classic 'The Principles of Mathematics' sets forth his landmark thesis that mathematics and logic are identical -- that what is commonly called mathematics is simply later deductions from logical premises. His ideas have had a profound influence on twentieth-century work on logic and the foundations of mathematics.

An undergraduate college level textbook covering first order predicate logic with identity but omitting metalogical proofs. The first rules of formal logic were written over 2300 years ago by Aristotle and are still vital.

A very accessible mathematical classic. It sets forth in elementary form the logical definition of number, the analysis of the notion of order, the modern doctrine of the infinite, and the theory of descriptions and classes as symbolic fictions.
