"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.
