Another way of mapping the boundaries of logical empiricism is to listthe specific philosophers who were centrally or peripherally part ofit. This included many of the most important philosophers of themid-twentieth century. Hans Hahn, MoritzSchlick, Rudolf Carnap, and Otto Neurath were leaders of the ViennaCircle, and Kurt Gödel regularly attended its meetings. Thelist of its members, visitors, and interlocutors is staggering, including A.J. Ayer, Herbert Feigl, PhilippFrank, Hans Hahn, Carl Hempel, Karl Menger, Richard von Mises, ErnestNagel, Karl Popper, W.V. Quine, Frank Ramsay, Hans Reichenbach, AlfredTarski, Friedrich Waismann, and Ludwig Wittgenstein, among many others. Not all ofthese would admit to being part of the logical empiricist movement, ofcourse, but a case can be made that all contributed to it. TheBerlin Society for Empirical (or Scientific) Philosophy was, as stated,smaller but perhaps more influential. Led by Hans Reichenbach, itincluded Kurt Grelling, Walter Dubislav, Kurt Lewin,Richard von Mises, Paul Oppenheim, and others. Hempel took his doctoratein Berlin, working with Reichenbach until the latter was forcedto leave in 1933. Hempel also spent time in Vienna and Prague. Of course, among the foremost associates of the BerlinSociety was Albert Einstein, who was also in Berlin also until1933.
These ideas on demarcation and induction formed slowly as Popper conducted endless discussions and debates with members of the inner Vienna Circle (Viktor Kraft and Herbert Feigl) and others on the periphery, such as Heinrich Gomperez. It was Herbert Feigl, after a nightlong session, who proposed that Popper should write a book. Hacohen provides a dramatic account of the writing, revision and publication of Logik der Forschung in 1934, one of a series of monographs produced by the Vienna Circle (it appeared in English in 1959 as The Logic of Scientific Discovery). All manner of problems intruded, political tensions were on the rise, the inner Circle members were divided on the acceptability of the book, Popper’s first effort had to be cut almost in half, the editor procrastinated for months before reading the manuscript, Popper was madly impatient to get into print and rubbed everyone up the wrong way, there were paper shortages, other books to be considered for publication in the series.

“As his historical analysis makes clear the so-called ‘Copernican Revolution’ took a century and a half to complete and it was agued every step of the way…however radical the resulting changes in physical and astronomical ideas and theories it was the outcome of a continuing rational discussion and it implied no comparable break in the intellectual methods of physics and astronomy.” (105) He went on to say that the scientists who were trained in the pre-Copernican system did not to be forced or cajoled into changing their minds, there was no need for a quasi-religious conversion because the evidence and the arguments were there to convince them over a period of time.
