Additional information

This paper was written early in 1954 at the request of Professor Schilpp, for inclusion in a volume on Carnap which he had been planning. The paper has since appeared in Italian translation as ‘Carnap e la verità logica’, Rivista di Filosofia, vol. 48 (1957), pp. 3–29. Selected portions, running to somewhat less than half, have appeared also in American Philosophers at Work (Sidney Hook, ed.), Criterion Books, New York, 1956.
