We find pioneering conceptions of philosophical analysis in the works of George Edward Moore and Jan Łukasiewicz, the most eminent representatives of analytic philosophy. While the views of the first are widely known and have been repeatedly and extensively commented on, Łukasiewicz’s conception has unfortunately not provoked many comments or studies. In this article, I would like to reconstruct Łukasiewicz’s theory of conceptual analysis, present its motivation and weaknesses, and show its influence on the development of the semiotic method of analysis in the Lvov-Warsaw School.
