Even though Logical Positivism itself failed as a philosophical project, the effects of this empirical project still ripple through the philosophical world today. One cannot come to an understanding of modern analytic philosophy, such as the philosophies of W.V.O. Quine, without dealing with the theories of the Logical Positivists, such as Rudolf Carnap. This work is one of the cornerstones of Positivistic philosophy; it is 'manifesto' of what the Positivists wanted in a philosophical theory. By utilizing logic and radical reductionism, Carnap wished to show how one's knowledge of the world can be reduced to sense data and how our talk about the external world is built up from our immediate sense data. This work is concise and clearly formulated; its goals clearly stated and the workings of the logical mechinary vividly shown. I would recommend this book to one wanting to learn more about Logical Positivism.

Rudolf Carnap (1891-1970) was a German-born philosopher who was active in Europe before 1935 and in the United States thereafter. He was a major member of the Vienna Circle and an advocate of logical positivism. He wrote many books, such as Meaning and Necessity, An Introduction to the Philosophy of Science, Introduction to Symbolic Logic and Its Applications, etc.

He wrote in the Preface to the second edition, “[Logical Structure] was my first larger book, the first attempt to bring into systematic form my earlier philosophical reflections. The first version was written in the years 1922-1925… The main problem concerns the possibility of the rational reconstruction of the concepts of all fields of knowledge on the basis of concepts that refer to the immediately given. By rational reconstruction is here meant the searching out of new definitions for old concepts… I had realized… the fundamental importance of mathematics for the formation of a system of knowledge and… its purely logical, formal character to which it owes its independence from the contingencies of the real world. These insights formed the basis of my book. Later on, through conversations in [Moritz] Schlick’s circle in Vienna and through the influence of Wittgenstein’s ideas they developed into the mode of thought which characterized the ‘Vienna Circle.’ This orientation is sometimes called ‘logical empiricism’ (or ‘logical positivism’), in order to indicate the two components.” (Pg.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Interesting essay and accurate translation, but the theoretical construction is a bit outdated, because of the time lapsed from when it was first written and of the constraints of Wiener kreis' logical positivism
