Hempel), and the Prague staff (Rudolf Carnap, Philipp Frank), and, at the different, philosophers and scientists in Denmark (Niels Bohr, Joergen Joergensen), Finland (Eino Kaila, Georg Henrik von Wright and their disciples), Norway (Arne Næss and his students), and Sweden (Åke Petzäll, the magazine Theoria and a more youthful iteration of philosophers in Uppsala). moreover, the natural idea of legislations of Hans Kelsen accomplished huge dissemination within the Nordic nations (through, for instance, Alf Ross). one of many key occasions within the family members among the primary eu philosophers and people of the Nordic international locations was once the second one overseas Congress for the cohesion of technological know-how which used to be prepared in Copenhagen in 1936.

We intend to make clear this forgotten communique and to reconstruct those hidden scholarly networks from an old and logical viewpoint, thereby comparing their value for today’s research.
