Jan Łukasiewicz and Stanisław Ja¶kowski are credited with being the first
who remarked that practicizing mathematicians do not appeal to logic
theories but make use of other methods of proof. The idea of creating
a new kind of logic to match the mathematical practice has been materialized
both in Gentzen's calculi (1934) and in Ja¶kowski's suppositional calculus
(1934 too). The latter has been developed up to the stage of the
proof-checker Mizar MSE.

This is a concise textbook but in two respects it goes far beyond a typical
course of logic. (i) It presents the proof-checker Mizar MSE as applied to
the study of logic (ii) in the context of a discussion on the algorithmic
processing of logical formulas. This is why it is published here as an
original contribution to the area of computer-asisisted reasoning. The choice of topics
and examples makes it attractive also for those interested in the humanities
