Louis Couturat (1868–1914) was the main promoter of symbolic logic in France at the beginning of the 20th century, author in particular of a book on the algebra of logic. He was a good friend of Bertrand Russell with whom he had a long correspondence which was recently published. He rediscovered and made worldwide known the work of Leibniz on logic. He promoted the artificial language Ido.
