He grew up in
"I came upon the idea of a parenthesis-free notation in 1924. I used that notation for the first time in my article Łukasiewicz(1), p. 610, footnote." The reference cited by Łukasiewicz above is apparently a lithographed
report in Polish. The referring paper by Łukasiewicz Remarks on
Nicod's Axiom and on "Generalizing Deduction", originally published in
Polish in 1931,[2] was later reviewed by H. A. Pogorzelski in the
Journal of Symbolic Logic in 1965.[3]
In Łukasiewicz 1951 book, Aristotle's Syllogistic from the Standpoint
of Modern Formal Logic, he mentions that the principle of his notation
was to write the functors before the arguments to avoid brackets and
that he had employed his notation in his logical papers since 1929.[4]
He then goes on to cite, as an example, a 1930 paper he wrote with
