Logical Positivism and Theology1

H. H. Price M.A.

The subject of this paper is the relation of Logical Positivism to Theology. By “Logical Positivism” I mean the doctrine originated by Dr. Wittgenstein and expounded more at length by Professors Carnap, Schlick, and other members of the Viennese Circle (Wiener Kreis) in the periodical called Erkenntnis. The clearest account of it in English is that given by Mr. R. B. Braithwaite in the volume called Cambridge University Studies.
