Abstract

SOMB PROBLBMS IN LOGICAL BMPIRICISM BY The Vienna Circle began as a small group of men interested in the problems of philosophy and science. From 1922 until the third international congress for the unity of science in 1938, the circle grew in clarity of expression and rigor of purpose. While seeking to appreciate the historical philosophical systems of the past, its members had one end in view: they sought to reach the same universal validity and lasting results in philosophy as had been achieved in the exact "sciences". Many differences arose on matters of detail but all agreed that philosophy ought to be scientific, committing itself to the same unambiguous clarity and logical rigor hitherto found only in the other sciences 1). The purpose of this article is to make the reader aware of certain developments and problems inherent in Logical Empiricism. The movement is especially strong in the United States and since it is still in a dynamic state of flux, no treatment of it can pretend to be exhaustive or definitive. Any generalization that we may make is weak and tentative. Many of the difficulties which we shall encounter have been anticipated by members of the
