Peter Thurley pthurley(at) Written in Winter 2005 for PHIL 350, Epistemology, taught by Jim Van Evra Peter Thurley's Simple Homepage Dinner Table Donts QUINE AND CARNAP ON ANALYTICITY In Quine’s epic paper Two Dogmas of Empiricism he takes issue with the notion of the classic analytic-synthetic distinction, first introduced to us by Kant. He specifically seeks to dissolve the idea that there are analytic statements which express logical truths about facts in the world. In section 4 of the paper, Quine specifically takes aim at Carnap’s conception of analyticity, and attempts to show that Carnap is really begging the question about what analyticity really is. I will explore Carnap’s formulation of what it means for an analytic statement to be a logical truth, explain Quine’s reasons for rejecting this formulation and conclude by defending Quine against some of Carnap’s objections to his thought. Carnap’s explication of analytic statements is found in his short paper Meaning Postulates In it he lays out the ground work for how it is possible to call a statement such as ‘Fido is Black or Fido is not Black’ and ‘If Jack is a bachelor, then he is not married’ an analytic sentence.

Table of Contents (Clicking on the links below will take you to those parts of this article) 1. Life Rudolf Carnap was born on May 18, 1891, in Ronsdorf, Germany. In 1898, after his father's death, his family moved to Barmen, where Carnap studied at the Gymnasium. From 1910 to1914 he studied philosophy, physics and mathematics at the universities of Jena and Freiburg. He studied Kant under Bruno Bauch and later recalled how a whole year was devoted to the discussion of The Critique of Pure Reason . Carnap became especially interested in Kant’s theory of space. Carnap took three courses from Gottlob Frege in 1910, 1913 and 1914. Frege was professor of mathematics at Jena. During those courses, Frege expounded his system of logic and its applications in mathematics. However, Carnap’s principal interest at that time was in physics, and by 1913 he was planning to write his dissertation on thermionic emission. His studies were interrupted by World War I and Carnap served at the front until 1917. He then moved to Berlin and studied the theory of relativity. (At that time, Albert Einstein was professor of physics at the University of Berlin.) After the war, Carnap developed a new dissertation, this time on an axiomatic system for the physical theory of space and time. He submitted a draft to physicist Max Wien, director of the Institute of Physics at the University of Jena, and to Bruno Bauch. Both found the work interesting, but Wien told Carnap the dissertation was pertinent to philosophy, not to physics, while Bauch said it was relevant to physics. Carnap then chose to write a dissertation under the direction of Bauch on the theory of space from a philosophical point of view. Entitled Der Raum (Space), the work was clearly influenced by Kantian philosophy. Submitted in 1921, it was published the following year in a supplemental issue of Kant-Studien.

Not too long ago I was surfing around the Net in search of information on Rudolf Carnap. I found some decent materials, though they were not linked up through any central site. That moved me to write up the page you are looking at now. I have attempted to assemble such information on Carnap as is scattered through the web, including on-line texts, pictures, notices of events, and other materials. I have also posted and continue to post original content to the website. My aim is both to catalogue and to add to on-line information regarding Carnap's life and work.
Syntactic Variables
I have assembled an index of the syntactic variables which permeate Carnap's Logical Syntax of Language . I suspect readers of LSL will see the usefulness of such an index.
A bibliography is given at the bottom of the entry on Carnap in the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy. You will no doubt have to scroll down to see the bibliography. I am also posting a bibliography of Carnap's works on this site . At the moment it is under heavy construction.

Rudolf Carnap was a German philosopher who fled to America in 1935 because of the growing power of the Nazis. He was a leading developer of logical positivism, and argued that descriptions of reality can only be regarded as meaningful if they are derived from experience. Because of this, he also argued for eliminating the pursuit of metaphysics as a waste of time.

Rudolf Carnap
The German-American philosopher Rudolf Carnap (1891-1970) was the most prominent representative of the school of logical positivism, sometimes called logical empiricism. Rudolf Carnap was born on May 18, 1891, in Ronsdorf, Germany. From 1910 to 1914 he studied philosophy and science at the universities of Jena and Freiburg . At Jena, Gottlob Frege, the pioneering mathematical logician, directed his thinking. Carnap served as an officer in the Germany army during World War I, later resuming his studies at Jena, where he received his doctorate in 1921. As a student, Carnap came under the influence of Bertrand Russell and his writings on logic and epistemology In 1923 Carnap met Hans Reichenbach, with whom he later founded and edited Erkenntnis (1930-1940), the journal of the logical empiricists. Through Reichenbach he met Moritz Schlick, head of the Philosophical Circle at the University of Vienna. In 1926 Carnap became instructor of philosophy there and participated in the Circle. Ludwig Wittgenstein attended meetings of the Circle in 1927, becoming another influence on Carnap's thought. Carnap won wide recognition among philosophers with the publication of the Logische Aufbau der Welt (Logical Structure of the World) in 1928. He offered a new methodology, which called for the reduction of all knowledge to private, subjective sense-data in order to construct a technical system to embrace all known-objects and to solve philosophical problems. In 1928 Carnap also published
