 George Dalgarno (1626-1687)
George Dalgarno is an interesting character whom one might describe as the first AITist - well not quite, for he admits a sense of the verb 'to be' which is derived from 'Being, ' but at least he says this is quite distinct from the use of the verb as the copula.
George Dalgarno's Art of Signs (Ars Signorum, 1661) was the first work in the seventeenth century to present a fully elaborated universal language constructed on philosophical principles.
Dalgarno and Wilkins collaborated on developing the scheme further, but it soon turned out that they had irreconcilable differences of opinion on how a philosophical language ought to be structured.
