Augustus Morgan

I am perfectly convinced that I have both seen, and heard in a manner which should make unbelief impossible, things called spiritual which cannot be taken by a rational being to be capable of explanation by imposture, coincidence, or mistake.More Augustus Morgan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Wrong hypotheses, rightly worked from, have produced more useful results than unguided observations.More Augustus Morgan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I end with a word on the new symbols which I have employed. Most writers on logic strongly object to all symbols. ... I should advise the reader not to make up his mind on this point until he has well weighed two facts which nobody disputes, both separately and in connexion. First, logic is the only science which has made no progress since the revival of letters; secondly, logic is the only science which has produced no growth of symbols.More Augustus Morgan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The gambling reasoner is incorrigible; if he would but take to the squaring of the circle, what a load of misery would be saved.More Augustus Morgan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We know that mathematicians care no more for logic than logicians for mathematics. The two eyes of science are mathematics and logic; the mathematical set puts out the logical eye, the logical set puts out the mathematical eye; each believing that it sees better with one eye than with two. Note that De Morgan, himself, only had sight with only one eye.More Augustus Morgan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
