Bernard Bolzano's publications

We list below the main publications of Bolzano's work which appeared after his death.


  1. Bernard Bolzano, Spisy Bernarda Bolzano - Bernard Bolzano's Schriften Vol. 1, Functionenlehre, Edited and with notes by K Rychlik. Foreword by K Petr (Královská Ceská Spolecnost Nauk, Prague, 1930).

    First publication of the Bolzano Committee. Bolzano intended Functionenlehre, written before 1834, to be part of Grössenlehre. It contains the famous Bolzano function which is continuous on an interval [a, b] but not monotonic on any subinterval. Given two points in the interval at which no derivative exists, Bolzano showed there was an point lying between them at which no derivative exists.

  2. Bernard Bolzano, Spisy Bernarda Bolzano - Bernard Bolzano's Schriften Vol. 2, Zahlentheorie, Edited and with notes by K Rychlik (Královská Ceská Spolecnost Nauk, Prague, 1931).

    Second publication of the Bolzano Committee. It contains part of Bolzano's manuscript entitled Zahlentheorie intended by Bolzano to be part of Grössenlehre. The part given here is Bolzano's presentation of the integers and their elementary properties.

  3. Bernard Bolzano, Spisy Bernarda Bolzano - Bernard Bolzano's Schriften Vol. 3, Von dem besten Staate (About the ideal state), Edited and Einführende Betrachtungen by A Kowalewski (Královská Ceská Spolecnost Nauk, Prague, 1932).

    Third publication of the Bolzano Committee. Bolzano, in this work, argues for an ideal human society based on the absolute equality of all people in the society. He argues that owning large amounts of property does not merit respect but should be viewed as possibly having been acquired through immoral and/or illegal means. Even if legally acquired, he believes, such wealth is merely the "quest of riches blessed by law". He regrets that many people have to work so hard to earn enough to feed their families that they damage their health.

  4. Bernard Bolzano, Spisy Bernarda Bolzano - Bernard Bolzano's Schriften Vol. 4, Der Briefwechsel B Bolzano's mit F Exner, Edited with notes and introduction by E Winter (Královská Ceská Spolecnost Nauk, Prague, 1935).

    Fourth publication of the Bolzano Committee. This contains letters between Bolzano and the philosopher Franz Exner (1802-1853).

  5. Bernard Bolzano, Spisy Bernarda Bolzano - Bernard Bolzano's Schriften Vol. 5, Memoires géométriques, Edited and with notes by J Vojtech (Královská Ceská Spolecnost Nauk, Prague, 1948).

    Fifth and final publication of the Bolzano Committee. The volume contains four of Bolzano's memoirs on geometry: Betrachtungen über einige Gegenstände der Elementargeometrie; Versuch einer objectiven Begründung der Lehre von den drei Dimensionen des Raumes; Die drey Probleme der Rectification, der Complanation und der Cubirung; and über Haltung, Richtung, Krümmung und Schnörkelung bei Linien. Coxeter writes:-

    Their chief merit lies in the clear presentation of definitions, theorems, proofs, and remarks. Evidently Bolzano had no inkling of the work of his great contemporaries: Gauss, Bolyai and Lobachevsky. For him parallelism presented no problem; he regarded direction as a primitive concept.

  6. Bernard Bolzano, Paradoxes of the Infinite, Translated from the German of the posthumous edition by Dr Fr Prihonsk'y and furnished with a historical introduction by Donald A Steele (Routledge and Kegan Paul, London, 1950).

    English translation of Paradoxien des Unendlichen (1851), the original being edited by Franz Prihonsky.

  7. Bernard Bolzano, I paradossi dell'infinito (Italian), Traduzione dal tedesco di Carla Sborgi. Prefazione e appendice di F Volaggio. Biblioteca Scientifica Feltrinelli, No. 12 (Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Editore, Milan 1965).

    Italian translation of Paradoxien des Unendlichen (1851), the original being edited by Franz Prihonsky. Also contains a preface and appendix entitled La problematica logico-filosofica di Bolzano by F Voltaggio.

  8. Bernhard Bolzano, Anti-Euklid (Czech), Edited by Kazimír Vecerka, Acta Hist. Rerum Natur. Nec Non Tech. 11 (1967), 203-216.

    Vecerka writes:-

    In the national library in Vienna there are nine folios ... written by Bolzano himself; the first of these has the title 'Anti-Euclid'. The text is published here for the first time. E Winter conjectured (in 1933) - without proof - that these folios constitute meagre fragments of Bolzano's work 'Anti-Euclid' which - according to Bolzano's own report - was lost (it is perhaps possible that the lost 'Anti-Euclid' was written "according to such a detailed plan"), and that this work contained the concept of non-Euclidean geometry. The available text contains only ideas concerning the reform and improvement of Euclidean geometry.

  9. Bernard Bolzano, Ein Lebensbild (German), Bernard Bolzano-Gesamtausgabe, Herausgegeben von Eduard Winter, Jan Berg, Friedrich Kambartel, Bob van Rootselaar. Einleitungsband. Erster Teil: Biographie (Friedrich Frommann Verlag (Günther Holzboog), Stuttgart, 1969).

    This is the first volume of the new series (which is still being produced) of Bernard Bolzano- Gesamtausgabe. This volume contains a biography of Bolzano together with details of the topics on which he worked: mathematics, logic, theology, philosophy and aesthetics.

    This is Bolzano's second published book of 1810. The title can be translated as Contributions to a more well-founded presentation of mathematics.

  13. Bernard Bolzano, Paradoxien des Unendlichen (German), Text herausgegeben aus dem Schriftlichen Nachlasse des Verfassers von Fr Prihonsk'y.

    Contains Bolzano's Reine Zahlenlehre (Theory of Numbers) which was written between 1820 and 1825. It concerns natural numbers and elementary properties of integers and rational numbers. The volume also contains Bolzano's theory of the real numbers. Although earlier versions of Bolzano's work on real numbers was incorrect, Berg shows here for the first time that Bolzano had realised this himself and proposed a modification which could lead to his work being correct.

  16. Bernard Bolzano, Bernard Bolzano-Gesamtausgabe: Reihe II. Nachlass. B. Wissenschaftliche Tagebücher, Band 2: Miscellanea Mathematica, 1 und 2 (German), Herausgegeben von Bob van Rootselaar und Anna van der Lugt (Friedrich Frommann Verlag (Günther Holzboog), Stuttgart, 1977).

    This volume marks the start of the publication of Bolzano's mathematical diaries. The material covered here starts in 1802 and most of it relates to Betrachtungen über einege Gegenstande der Elementargeometrie which Bolzano published in 1804. This attempts an axiomatisation of geometry. There are also entries relating to Bolzano's ideas on mechanics.

    Jan Berg's own summary of the contents:-

    This volume in the series of posthumous writings of the Collected works of Bernard Bolzano contains transcriptions of some early manuscripts which present his views in the 1810's on the foundations of logic, mathematics and physics. Bolzano's second book, Beyträge zu einer begründeteren Darstellung der Mathematik in 1810, is a general introduction to the classification and methodology of mathematics. Most manuscripts of the present volume constitute steps toward the realization of a planned sequel to that book; their contents range from an exposition of General Mathesis, supplemented by an extensive analysis of the notion of quantity, through a theory of cause and consequence, called 'aetiology', to essays on geometry and mechanics. Among the other contributions, a manuscript on the basic concepts of logic adumbrates fundamental themes in Bolzano's major work, the Wissenschaftslehre of 1837.
