International Conference | Paul Feyerabend and Austrian Philosophy. His Formative Years in Postwar Vienna | July 5-6, 2024

The international conference "Paul Feyerabend and Austrian Philosophy" aims at exploring the milieu which shaped Feyerabend's intellectual development with a focus on his interaction with university teachers and intellectual figures such as members of the former Vienna Circle like Viktor Kraft, Philipp Frank, Herbert Feigl, and Rudolf Carnap, physicists like Felix Ehrenhaft and Walter Thirring, as well as with Walter Hollitscher and Ludwig Wittgenstein. Contacts continued throughout the 1950s and 1960s at the London School of Economics with Karl Popper and, later, with Imre Lakatos, and in Minneapolis, at Feigl's Minnesota Center for Philosophy of Science, where Feyerabend published his pathbreaking "Against Method" for the first time in 1970.
