It contains helpful signposts to and discussion of the secondary literature, is much more in touch with logical orthodoxy, and each chapter has its own abstract and bibliography; so it can be dipped into as well as read from front to back. One of the undisputed leaders of the cohort of brilliant logicians that congregated in Poland in the early twentieth century, Lesniewski was a guide and mentor to a generation of celebrated analytical philosophers Alfred Tarski was his PhD student. With material on his early philosophical views, his contributions to set theory and his work on nominalism and higher-order quantification, this book offers a uniquely expansive critical commentary on one of analytical philosophy's great pioneers.
