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

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.

Inthe time was not very opportune for entering a university.

This was not only due to the immediate fighting, but also because of the easiowa destruction which followed the uprising after it had been suppressed. The lives of many Poles became endangered, so Helena’s father decided to return to Warsaw. The Rasiowa family fled also, as most high-ranking administration officials and members of the government were being evacuated to Romania.

Retrieved from ” https: Rasiowa had to interrupt her studies, as no legal education was possible in Poland after She herself survived with her mother in a cellar covered by the ruins of the demolished building.

Rasiowa’s thesis burned with the whole house. For the degree, she submitted two papers, Algebraic Models of Axiomatic Theories and Constructive Theorieswhich together formed a thesis named Algebraic Models of Nelena Theories and their Applications.

Rasiowa became strongly influenced by Polish logicians. She exhibited many different skills and interests, from music to business management and the most important of her interests, mathematics. She worked in the foundations of mathematics and algebraic logic. After a Soviet invasion in Septemberthe town was taken over by the Soviet Union.


One of the important conditions for hlena reconstruction was to gather all those who could participate in re-creating mathematics. That is where she met Andrzej Mostowski and came back to the University. In the heleja, Rasiowa had accepted a teaching position in a secondary school. Inshe took her second academic degree, doktor nauk equivalent to habilitation today in the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Scienceswhere between andshe held a post of Associate Professor, becoming a Professor in and subsequently Full Professor in Helena Rasiowa 20 June — 9 August was a Polish mathematician.

As soon as Poland regained its independence inthe hleena settled in Warsaw. Those who remained considered their duty to be the reconstruction of Polish universities and the scientific community.

This thesis on algebraic logic initiated her career contributing to the Lwow-Warsaw school of logic:
