about

Carl G. Hempel exerted greater influence upon philosophers of science than any other figure during the 20th century. In this far-reaching collection, distinguished philosophers contribute valuable studies that illuminate and clarify the central problems to which Hempel was devoted. The essaysenhance our understanding of the development of logical empiricism as the major intellectual influence for scientifically-oriented philosophers and philosophically-minded scientists of the 20th century.

"....The collection constitutes a useful primary source for the history of twentieth-century philosophy of science....The whole collection is suffused with the lucidity characteristic of Hempel's own work, and it is a fitting memorial to a great philosopher." - - The British Journal for theHistory of Science
