The logic of chance by John Venn ( Book )
48 editions published between 1866 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The supposed wants of harmony between Probability and other branches of Philosophy is erroneous. It arises from the belief that Probability is a branch of mathematics trying to intrude itself on to ground which does not altogether belong to it. I shall endeavour to show that this belief is unfounded. With what may be called the Material view of Logic as opposed to the Formal or Conceptualist,--with that which regards it as taking cognizance of laws of things and not of the laws of our own minds in thinking about things,--I am in entire accordance. Of the province of Logic, regarded from this point of view, and under its widest aspect, Probability may, in my opinion, be considered to be a portion. The principal objects of this Essay are to ascertain how great a portion it comprises, where we are to draw the boundary between it and the contiguous branches of the general science of evidence, what are the ultimate foundations upon which its rules rest, what the nature of the evidence they are capable of affording, and to what class of subjects they may most fitly be applied. That the science of Probability, on this view of it, contains something more important than the results of a system of mathematical assumptions, is obvious. I am convinced moreover that it can and ought to be rendered both interesting and intelligible to ordinary readers who have any taste for philosophy"--Preface.

Symbolic logic by John Venn ( Book )
44 editions published between 1880 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"I have so fully explained the nature and aim of this system of Logic, in the Introduction, that nothing further need be said on this head. The substance of most of these chapters has been given in my college lectures, our present intercollegiate scheme of lecturing (now in operation for about twelve years) offering great facilities for the prosecution of any special studies which happen to suit the taste and capacity of some particular lecturer and a selection of the students. I mention this in order to explain what might seem a disproportionate devotion of time to one peculiar development of Logic. I should add here that the substance of some of the following chapters has already appeared elsewhere: viz Chap, I in Mind (July, 1880), Chap, V in the Philosophical Magazine (July, 1880), and Chap, XX in the Proc. of the Cambridge Philosophical Society (Dec, 1880), but all of these have been rewritten and enlarged. The general view adopted in this work was sketched out in an article in the Princeton Review of September, 1880"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
