Abstract

A brief presentation on occasion of Carnap’s visit to a meeting of the Indiana Philosophical Association at the same place (DePauw U) exactly 75 ago; based on research in the archives of the IPA, the University of Pittsburgh, and the University of Konstanz. The lecture provides some hitherto unknown biographical background, a summary of Carnap's main arguments (based on a transcription of the shorthand notes of Carnap's lecture), and assigns it a place in Carnap's oeuvre.
