The Importance of the Calculus Ratiocinator 
For if praise is given to the men who have determined the number of regular solids  which is of no use except insofar as
it is pleasant to contemplate  and if it is thought to be an exercise worthy of a mathematical genius tohave brought to light
the more elegant properties of aconcoid or cissoid, or some other figure which rarely has any use, how much better will it
be to bring under mathematical laws human reasoning which is the most excellent and useful thing we have.
