Pictures and diagrams can be very useful in presenting information or assisting reasoning. In this module we shall focus on Venn diagram. They are used to represent classes of objects. We can also use them to evaluate the validity of certain types of arguments.
Venn diagrams are named after the British logician John Venn (1834-1923), a fellow of Gonville and Caius college at Cambridge University. He was also a philosopher and mathematician, a pioneer of logic and probability theory.
