The Institute Vienna Circle (Friedrich Stadler) and the Vienna Forum for Analytic Philosophy (Dejan Makovec), together with the Hans Kelsen Institute and the ERC-Project “The Emergence of Relativism” host a three-day conference on Friedrich Waismann to take place in Vienna from the 15th to the 17th of September 2016. Waismann was a citizen of two worlds, the Vienna Circle before his emigration and the Oxonian ordinary language philosophy after his emigration, and came to be a prolific critic of both. Inspired by a first successful conference on Waismann –“Causality and Logical Positivism”, Vienna 2010 – the aim of this conference is to discuss the currency and variety of Waismann’s contributions to the field.
