Preller : Review: Helena Rasiowa, An Algebraic Approach to Non-Classical Logics

This thesis on algebraic logic initiated her career contributing to the Lwow-Warsaw school of logic: She re-wrote her Master’s thesis in and in the next year she started her academic career as an assistant at the University of Warsawthe institution she remained linked with for the rest of her life.

She exhibited many different skills and interests, from music to business management and the most important of her interests, mathematics. The Rasiowa family fled also, as most high-ranking administration officials and members of the government were being evacuated to Romania.

She worked in the foundations of mathematics and algebraic logic. After the war, Polish mathematics began to yelena its institutions, its moods, and its people.

The lives of many Poles became endangered, so Helena’s father decided to return to Warsaw. One of the important conditions for this reconstruction was to gather all those who could participate in re-creating mathematics.
