Institute Vienna Circle


The Institute Vienna Circle (IVC) is part of the Faculty of Philosophy and Education. The IVC stands in the tradition of the historical “Vienna Circle”. In this sense the IVC supports philosophical research projects that respond critically and constructively to issues arising in the special sciences. A further important agenda of the IVC is the integration of different disciplines focused on the sciences (philosophy, history, sociology). The IVC is also dedicated to the documentation, reconstruction and further development of logical empiricism. There exists a close cooperation with the Department of Philosophy (esp. the chairs for philosophy of science) and the “Vienna Circle Society”. The IVC houses research projects, a number of book series and a yearbook, as well as editing projects (Moritz Schlick-Projekt und Ernst Mach-Studienausgabe).
