The Gentle Strength of Tolerance: The Logical Syntax of Language and Carnap’s Philosophical Programme

  • Richard Creath
Chapter
Part of the History of Analytic Philosophy book series

Abstract

Before Rudolf Carnap wrote The Logical Syntax of Language he was an important philosopher, a very important one. After he wrote it, he was a great one. And tolerance is his great idea; it is at the very centre of his philosophic programme from this moment on. With most philosophers a programme is a wellspring of ideas that occasionally crystallizes into a book. In this case, the order is reversed: the book produced the idea and the idea generated the programme.
