About Jan Łukasiewicz

  • Jan Lukasiewicz (Polish: ['jan wuka'??vit?]; 21 December 1878 – 13 February 1956) was a Polish logician and philosopher born in Lemberg, a city in the Galician kingdom of Austria-Hungary (now Lviv, Ukraine).
  • His work centred on philosophical logic, mathematical logic, and history of logic.
  • He thought innovatively about traditional propositional logic, the principle of non-contradiction and the law of excluded middle.
  • Modern work on Aristotle's logic builds on the tradition started in 1951 with the establishment by Lukasiewicz of a revolutionary paradigm.
  • The Lukasiewicz approach was reinvigorated in the early 1970s in a series of papers by John Corcoran and Timothy Smiley—which inform modern translations of Prior Analytics by Robin Smith in 1989 and Gisela Striker in 2009.
  • Lukasiewicz is regarded as one of the most important historians of logic.
