By Paul R. Halmos

From the Preface: "Algebraic common sense [addresses] many of the difficulties of mathematical good judgment and the speculation of polyadic Boolean algebras, with which this quantity is usually involved. It is meant to be an effective means of treating algebraic common sense in a unified demeanour. the fabric is on the market to a common mathematical viewers; no titanic wisdom of algebra or good judgment is required ... apart from a mild Boolean origin, the amount is basically self-contained."

In strong assertive attitude indicating expressions and force modifying expressions, both the complementary proposition and the indicating expression or modifying adjunct are asserted. g. g. ‘I’m sure that’, are negated in combination with a proposition.
