One of the undisputed leaders of the cohort of impressive logicians that congregated in Poland within the early 20th century, Leśniewski used to be a consultant and mentor to a iteration of celebrated analytical philosophers (Alfred Tarski used to be his PhD student). His fundamental success was once a method of foundational mathematical common sense meant in its place to the Principia Mathematica of Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell.
