Near Fine copy, no dust jacket. Minor shelfwear to spine ends; clean text. This is the copy of Carl Hempel, one of the contributors to this volume (his essay "On the Structure of Scientific Theories" is on pages 11-38) ; his signature appears on the fly leaf. Carl Gustav Hempel (affectionately known as "Peter" by friends and family) was a major twentieth-century philosopher, most notably in the field of logical empiricism. He is especially well-known for his articulation of the Deductive-nomological model of scientific explanation, which was considered the "standard model" of scientific explanation during the 1950s and 1960s. He is also known for the Raven paradox, which highlights the problem of induction. Hempel was involved in the Berlin Circle (and consequently the Vienna Circle) of philosophers (David Hilbert, Richard Von Mises, Rudolph Carnap, Otto Neurath, Hans Reichenbach, Kurt Grelling) before fleeing to the US in the 1930s where he taught at the University of Chicago, City College of New York, Yale, Princeton, and finally the University of Pittsburgh.
