Abstract

In the 20 October, 1903, issue of the Rivista (Vol. 8, No. 3 — there was no No. 2!) appeared Peano’s proposal for an international auxiliary language [126]. (A preliminary version had been printed separately on his birthday, 27 August [127′].) As we have seen, the idea of such a language was already ‘in the air’ and Peano made no claims to originality for his idea. On the contrary, he gave all credit to Leibniz. His method of presenting it, however, was a stroke of genius. It is a refinement of his habit of not making a proposal until it has already been, at least partially, put into practice.
