About the Cyclopedia

Bolzano, Bernhard

(1781–1848). RC theol., philos. mathematician; prof. Prague 1805, deposed 1819. Held religion to be sum of all views which favor virtue or happiness. In ethics he combined virtue and happiness for the well-being of the whole. The function of logic is to present these “Wahrheiten an sich.” Used a theory of uniform force (“sich gleichbleibende Kraftäusserung”) to demonstrate immortality and existence of God.
