Vienna Circle Institute

The international Vienna Circle Institute, a nonprofit organization with no political affiliation, was founded in 1991. Its goal is the documentation and continued development of the Vienna Circle's work in science and public education, areas which have been neglected until now, as well as the maintenance and application of logical-empircial, critical-rational and linguistic analytical thought and construction of a scientific philosophy and world view in conjunction with general socio-cultural trends. One of the Institute's main objectives is to democratize knowledge and science as a process of enlightenment, counteracting all forms of irrational, dogmatic or fundamentalist thought, in a societal context and taking into account the latest developments in international research.
