His concise and clear style of writing marks an achievement in popularizing philosophy. The overall corpus of his works includes 42 larger philosophical works, numerous talks, short essays and volumes thereof popularizing philosophy as well as almost two hundred scientific articles. Among these publications A History of Formal Logic (Formale Logik, 1956) stands out as the world- renowned contribution to the history of philosophy.

It also discusses Bocheński’s metaphilosophical observations distinguishing various methods of practicing philosophy. The lecture is finalized with an analysis of the thinkers relevance to the contemporary culture and science.
