From Plato and Aristotle to contemporary logic the volume analyses the outstanding event of a controversial logical rule. Consequentia Mirabilis, for mathematicians such as Huygens was insufficient, for Cardano, Saccheri an others was a powerful instrument and is also subject of discussion in the philosophical world where it is either accused of sterility or exalted as a potential instrument of a self-established knowledge.
