Historical Note on Classical Logic
The foundations of the branch of logic know referred to as classical logic were laid down by Aristotle in the $4$th century BCE.
He did such a thorough job of what he did that logic was considered a finished science, and no significant contributions to the subject were made for another two thousand years.
