dc.description.abstract
In numerous, and even more recent, writings, the universal scholar Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz is once again referred to as the discoverer or inventor of the binary system. During his lifetime there was no use for such a system, but since the 1940s it has been an important basis for electronic digi-tal computers. Based on the work of Shirley and Ineichen, the European origin of the positional number system is being touched. There are reports of much older number systems using only two symbols that have been developed mainly in Asia.
