The Vienna Circle, the origin of neo-positivism; a chapter in the history of recent philosophy by Viktor Kraft( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Join original Vienna Circle member Victor Kraft in his discussion of the movement for an exclusive insider's view of this important point in philosophical history. In this in-depth philosophical study, Victor Kraft explores the role the Vienna Circle had on the international philosophical movement. The Vienna Circle constituted a point of departure for the reawaking, rebirth, and reformation of positivism and empiricism, leading to the creation of the Neo-positivism movement. At the time of The Vienna Circle's publication in the 1950s, the Neo-positivism movement stood in the foreground of contemporary philosophy, and it was quite possibly the most significant serious philosophical movement in the period between the two world wars. Making Kraft's study of Neo-positivism available to a world audience, Arthur Pap provides a rich and accessible translation from the original German. The book contains detailed expositions, accompanied here and there by criticism, of the Vienna Circle's views on the criteria of significance, the nature of logic and mathematics, the phenomenalist analysis of physical concepts, the verification-basis of scientific propositions, the meaning of probability, physicalism, and much more

The art of philosophizing : and other essays by Bertrand Russell( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The essays in this little volume, published here for the first time in book form, were written by Bertrand Rusell during the Second World War. In those years the author was teaching philosophy at American universities and exercising a growing influence on America's student population. The essays assembled here are fundamentally concerned with the "art of reckoning" in the fields of mathematics, logic and philosophy. The simplicity of Russell's exposition is astonishing, as is his ability to get to the core of the great philosophical issues and to skillfully probe the depth of philosophical analysis."--Inside dust jacket
