Otto Neurath: philosophy between science and politics

By Nancy Cartwright, Jordi Cat, Lola Fleck and Thomas E. Uebel

Abstract

Four distinguished authors have been brought together to produce this elegant study of a much-neglected figure. The book is divided into three sections: Neurath's biographical background and the economic and social context of his ideas; his theory of science; and the development of his role in debates on Marxist concepts of history and his own conception of science. Coinciding with the emerging serious interest in logical positivism, this timely publication will redress a current imbalance in the history and philosophy of science
