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.

Interesting essay and accurate translation, but the theoretical construction is a bit outdated, because of the time lapsed from when it was first written and of the constraints of Wiener kreis' logical positivism
