The Stoics investigated the rules of propositional logic in the third century before Christ.

The rules of modern propositional logic were developed by George Boole, an English mathematician and logician, in his book An Investigation of the Laws of Thought (1854).

Over eighty years later, Boole’s work was applied to electronic circuits by Claude Shannon in his master’s thesis at MIT.

This was the birth of modern digital logic.
