Abstract:

"In this collection of essays, one of the preeminent philosophers of science writing today offers a reinterpretation of the enduring significance of logical positivism, the revolutionary philosophical movement centered around the Vienna Circle in the 1920s and 1930s. Michael Friedman argues that the logical positivists (especially Carnap, Reichenbach, and Schlick) were philosophical revolutionaries, not so much for presenting a new version of empiricism (as often is thought to be the case), but rather by offering a new conception of a priori knowledge and its role in empirical knowledge."--BOOK JACKET.

"This collection will be mandatory reading for any philosopher or historian of science interested in the history of logical positivism in particular or the evolution of modern philosophy in general."--BOOK JACKET.
