The subject of this monograph is the relation of logic and probability. That is a large subject, and the work does not approach comprehending it. It is rather the attempt to develop a particular point of view about logic and probability, which is, roughly put, that the function of logic in the theory of probability is to specify the equivalence classes of sentences or propositions, such that members of the same class have always the same probability. That is the view, and a lot of the work of the book consists in finding out what the limits of this function are; just how much effect logic can have on probability, and to just what extent probability may be assumed to reach conclusions which are independent of assumptions about the logical relations among its objects.
