Hildegard Buschmann

Hildegard Buschmann, née Haack

*December 31, 1889 (Cologne, Germany)
†Unknown

Hildegard Buschmann was the daughter of Prof. Franz Haack. She studied mathematics and natural sciences at the universities of Bonn, Berlin and Münster (1910-1916). She received her doctorate with the thesis Johann Heinrich Lamberts Logik. Versuch einer Darstellung und Würdigung in 1923 (University of Bonn; German: Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn). Her supervisor was Gustav Wilhelm Störing. Buschmann’s study on Lambert is primarily based on Karl Krienelke’s book Lamberts Philosophie der Mathematik (1909). It portrays Lambert as a forerunner of inductive logic (Wilhelm Traugott Krug, Bernard Bolzano, Wilhelm Wundt) and of algebraic logic (George Boole, William Stanley Jevons, Ernst Schröder). Further publications by Buschmann are not known.
