John Venn is born in Yorkshire, England. A logician and philosopher, John Venn will play a critical role in the development of modern logic by creating a system for diagramming that can test the validity of categorical syllogisms.

Called Venn Diagrams, they will become very useful for ensuring that an argument is valid. Venn diagrams will employ circles to represent sets, with the position and overlap of the circles showing the relationships between the sets.
