Logical Machine

Logical machine is a term used by Allan Marquand (1853-1924) in 1883, perhaps in response to the ideas of Charles Sanders Peirce's "Logical Machines" as appearing for example in The American Journal of Psychology, 1. Nov. 1887, p. 165-170 (Google Books Eprint page 165).

Famous quotes containing the words machine and/or logical:

    I find it hard to believe that the machine would go into the creative artist’s hand even were that magic hand in true place. It has been too far exploited by industrialism and science at expense to art and true religion.
    Frank Lloyd Wright (1869–1959)

    Grammar is a tricky, inconsistent thing. Being the backbone of speech and writing, it should, we think, be eminently logical, make perfect sense, like the human skeleton. But, of course, the skeleton is arbitrary, too. Why twelve pairs of ribs rather than eleven or thirteen? Why thirty-two teeth? It has something to do with evolution and functionalism—but only sometimes, not always. So there are aspects of grammar that make good, logical sense, and others that do not.
    John Simon (b. 1925)
