Bernard Bolzano (1781-1850) is increasingly recognized as one of the greatest nineteenth-century philosophers. A philosopher and mathematician of rare talent, he made ground-breaking contributions to logic, the foundations and philosophy of mathematics, metaphysics, and the philosophy of religion. Many of the larger features of later analytic philosophy (but also many of the details) first appear in his work: for example, the separation of logic from psychology, his sophisticated understanding of mathematical proof, his definition of logical consequence, his work on the semantics of natural kind terms, or his anticipations of Cantor's set theory, to name but a few. To his contemporaries, however, he was best known as an intelligent and determined advocate for reform of Church and State. Based in large part on a carefully argued utilitarian practical philosophy, he developed a program for the non-violent reform of the authoritarian institutions of the Hapsburg Empire, a program which he himself helped to set in motion through his teaching and other activities. Rarely has a philosopher had such a great impact on the political culture of his homeland. Persecuted in his lifetime by secular and ecclesiastical authorities, long ignored or misunderstood by philosophers, Bolzano's reputation has nevertheless steadily increased over the past century and a half. Much discussed and respected in Central Europe for over a century, he is finally beginning to receive the recognition he deserves in the English-speaking world. This book provides a comprehensive and detailed critical introduction to Bolzano, covering both his life and works.

This report documents an investigation of the coastal and inlet physical processes acting at the San Bernard River mouth, Texas. The U.S. Army Engineer District, Galveston, requested the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL), to conduct this study to assist in formulation and assessment of alternatives for improving navigation along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) between the Brazos River and the San Bernard River and vicinity. In recent years, a spit has grown from northeast to southwest across the San Bernard River mouth. The migrating river mouth is narrowing, and sediment shoaling landward of it has reduced the river's discharge to the Gulf of Mexico. River flow is diverted into the GIWW, increasing the current velocity in an unpredictable way and possibly increasing sediment shoaling at the intersection of the river and the GIWW, as well as to the east at the west floodgate to the Brazos River. The present study was performed to identify and evaluate alternatives for maintaining the San Bernard River mouth. The San Bernard River is located in north-central Texas and flows through the alluvial valleys of the Colorado River and Brazos River. The central Texas coasts spans several zones from humid in the north to dry subhumid in the south. Average annual rainfall ranges from 104 to 125 cm, with large variations possible between droughts and precipitation brought by tropical storms. The San Bernard River has a much smaller drainage area than either the Colorado River or the Brazos River, with correspondingly much weaker flows and sediment discharge. Therefore, local storms primarily determine its flow. This study was organized in three components as an analysis of the coastal geomorphology and sediment-transport processes, a hydraulic analysis of the river and tidal flow, and a synthesis of results leading to development and evaluation of alternatives.
