Rare first edition of this doctoral dissertation on the solution of Hilbert’s sixth problem, written under the supervision of David Hilbert. The problem posed tried to axiomatize those branches of science in which mathematics is prevalent. Broggi here aims to establish a system with which to prove the consistency, completeness and the mutual independence of the axioms, following the model of Hilbert’s geometry.

Broggi (1880-1865) is one of the neglected figures in modern mathematical economics, an eminent academician, he held office in various seats at different institutions, producing numerous works.
