    This topic has a long and fascinating history.
    The English logician Venn suggested that interlocking circles can be used for the basic four types of classical logical statements: A, E, I, or O.
    The English mathematician George Boole understood how Venn’s diagrams could be adapted to show his basic rules for set operations
    That is a place to start.

    My bad, I should have been more clear. What I am looking for is the relationship between venn diagrams and truth tables or set notation and truth tables. Thanks anyways- and yes I did find the stuff by george boole...
