LILOG was a project that produced more than could have been expected at the outset. Not only were a large number of scientific papers, implemented systems, diplomas, dissertations and professors produced, but also a large part of a whole generation of scientists working on language understanding was brought together. The present book on LILOG makes clear that LILOG represents a great step forward in the development of a theory of text understanding. Futhermore this step forward is not only to be found on paper but also in the fact that a large part of the theoretical results have been integrated into an operational system, LEU/2. Without any doubt there is still a great deal to be done, but LILOG has already shown how worthwhile it is to go on in this direction.
