Very Good. Inscribed (in German) and signed by all 3 authors to philosopher Carl Hempel on half-title. 1974, Softcover, 168 pp. Very Good copy: light edgewear to wraps; unmarked contents. German text. Carl Gustav Hempel (affectionately known as "Peter" by friends and family) was a major twentieth-century philosopher, most notably in the field of logical empiricism. He is especially well-known for his articulation of the Deductive-nomological model of scientific explanation, which was considered the "standard model" of scientific explanation during the 1950s and 1960s. He is also known for the Raven paradox, which highlights the problem of induction. Hempel was involved in the Berlin Circle (and consequently the Vienna Circle) of philosophers (David Hilbert, Richard Von Mises, Rudolph Carnap, Otto Neurath, Hans Reichenbach, Kurt Grelling) before fleeing to the US in the 1930s where he taught at the University of Chicago, City College of New York, Yale, Princeton, and finally the University of Pittsburgh.
