Laws Of Form: A Fiftieth Anniversary, Hardback Book


  • Information


Laws of Form is a seminal work in foundations of logic, mathematics and philosophy published by G Spencer-Brown in 1969.

The book provides a new point of view on form and the role of distinction, markedness and the absence of distinction (the unmarked state) in the construction of any universe.

A conference was held August 8-10, 2019 at the Old Library, Liverpool University, 19 Abercromby Square, L697ZN, UK to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the publication of Laws of Form and to remember George Spencer-Brown, its author.

The book is a collection of papers introducing and extending Laws of Form written primarily by people who attended the conference in 2019.
