Vienna circle on determinism

Tomasz Placek

pp. 183-195

Members of Vienna Circle explicated determinism in terms of predictability in principle, or calculability. This paper attempts to uncover the rationale for this explication. It argues that the explication was an attempt to escape trivialization arguments; another important factor was the Circle's views on meaning as testability.
