Philosophy and Science in Nineteenth-Century Austria

Bernard Bolzano (1781-1848) and Franz Brentano (1838-1917)

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Brentano

Professor David Luft will discuss two major Austrian philosophers who, despite their importance, are hardly known today.  Bernard Bolzano opened the door on the semantic tradition and possibilities that were later explored by Anglo-American philosophy, while Franz Brentano influenced Freud and founded the phenomenological tradition in philosophy.   In light of this, it is puzzling that these philosophers are not better known today.
