History and Philosophy of Logic 42 (2):160-179 (2021)

Leśniewski is known for his pedantry and idiosyncratic notation, which make it extremely difficult to read and follow. As reading comes before understanding, this paper therefore attempts only one thing, that is, to reveal and explain the framework of his basic logic, viz. Protothetic, in an adequate fashion without committing the sin of creating too much noise by supplying too much detailed information.
