Since its first appearance in the works of von Neumann (1932) and Birkhoff and von Neumann (1936) in the late twenties and mid-thirties, quantum logic has become a vast, mixed field lying at the crossroads of and drawing on the methods of physics, mathematics, logic and philosophy. The approaches to and the interpretations of quantum logic have become very diverse in the past sixty years with literally thousands of papers and dozens of monographs in the field (see Pavicic's (1992) bibliography on quantum logic). One of the recent works on quantum logic is Svozil's book. In this essay I review Svozil's book by relating its content to the following four groups of major themes that comprise what came to be called quantum logic.
