There are some original features in the treatment given to the subject by the author, which make it an interesting reading also for people well acquainted with other work on probabilistic logics.

**— ****Mathematical Reviews**

Anyone interested in the history and philosophy of logic will find this work intriguing. Amateur logicians will find it challenging but will appreciate the progression toward expressing quantified probability logic in a richer formal structure, thus broadening the book's range of possible applications.
