This book is a major contribution to the history of analytic philosophy in general and logical positivism in particular. It provides the first detailed and comprehensive study of Rudolf Carnap, one of the most influential figures in twentieth-century philosophy. This book fills a significant gap in the literature on the history of twentieth-century philosophy, and will be of particular importance to historians of analytic philosophy, philosophers of science, and historians of science.

Review:

"...an intensive examination of virtually all of Carnap's earlier writings....I believe that the book will therefore be indispensable for all future work on Carnap." Michael Friedman, author of Kant and the Exact Sciences

"Richardson presents a clearly written, carefully researched and well-argued interpretation of Rudolf Carnap's struggle to move beyond the neo-Kantian epistemology in which he was trained." Charles E. Kielkopf, Mathematical Reviews

"Richardson's book is rich in telling detail that will no doubt be debated in scholarly articles...It is an added bonus that Richardson provides good reasons for optimism." The Philosophical Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book is a major contribution to the history of analytic philosophy in general and of logical positivism in particular. It provides the first detailed and comprehensive study of Rudolf Carnap, one of the most influential figures in twentieth-century philosophy. The focus of the book is Carnap's first major work: Der logische Aufbau der Welt (The Logical Structure of the World). It reveals tensions within the context of German epistemology and philosophy of science in the early twentieth century. Alan Richardson argues that Carnap's move to philosophy of science in the 1930s was largely an attempt to dissolve the tension in his early epistemology. This book fills a significant gap in the literature on the history of twentieth-century philosophy. It will be of particular importance to historians of analytic philosophy, philosophers of science, and historians of science. Seller Inventory # LHB9780521430081
