Giordano Bruno

 

From What Is Meaning? (1903) by Lady V. Welby

Like Bruno, Leibnitz hoped for a science of signs, an algebra of thought, but he aimed at a system in which to reason and to calculate were identical, reason being literally ratio. On the other hand, Bruno "hoped to perfect a method of connecting universal ideas with real knowledge, while furnishing rules for discussion and directions for the exercise of thought and of speech. The pupil was to learn not only how to expound, to attack, and to defend, but to combine conceptions, to form new ideas, to conceive all which is or can be; not to think alone, but to use the thought of others" (Frith's Life of Giordano Bruno, 1887, p. 94). Surely we might share this last aim?
