Friedrich Ueberweg (1826--71) is best remembered for both his compendious "History of Philosophy and his "System of Logic, both of which went through several editions in the original German. It was the latter's remarkable popularity as a textbook in Germany that led Lindsay to translate it to fill a gap in the English market. As well as incorporating the most up-to-date revisions and additions of the German edition he inserted the opinions of the more important English logicians. As such this is a valuable textbook for the understanding of logic systems as taught in England and Germany before symbolic logic was a formal and distinct discipline.
