The Origin and Growth of Plato's Logic
by Wincenty Lutosawski
Publisher: Longmans, Green and co. 1905
Number of pages: 616
In undertaking the investigations summarized in this volume, the author's chief aim was to explain the origin of Logic by a psychological study of the first logician. This required a knowledge of the chronology of Plato's writings, not supplied by our historical tradition nor by the extant Platonic investigations.

Century-by-Century: Insights, Images, and Bios. The continuity and expansion of a fundamental concept. We shall attempt to indicate the way in which logic has developed from the science of reflective thinking, or reasoning, to the science of form.

By the employment of the reasoning faculties of the mind we compare objects presented to the mind as percepts or concepts, taking up the raw materials of thought and weaving them into complex mental fabrics which we call abstract ideas of truth.
