Paperback. All very good in wraps, "HF" in colored pencil on the offprint from Erkenntnis, probably by Feigl himself. All very good in wraps. From the collection of Wilfrid Sellars. Herbert Feigl was an Austrian-born logical empiricist philosopher who published the main part of his writings after his emigration to the United States in 1931. To a large extent inspired by the writings of his academic teacher Moritz Schlick, Feigl delivered important contributions to the philosophical analysis of probability, to the debate over scientific realism, and to the analysis of the mind-body problem (Stanford Encylopedia); he and Sellars co-founded and edited Philosophy of Science journal. Sellars was a major American philosopher who was the first to synthesize American pragmatism with Continental analytical philosophy and Vienna Circle logical positivism. He ranks with Carnap, Hempel, Salmon and Grunbaum as among the 20th century's most influential philosophers. Very Good. Item #H17740
