The Response to the Vienna Circle’s Critique of Metaphysics in the Inter-war Poland

Logical positivism caught considerable attention of variety of philosophical centers in the inter-war Poland. Most notable reactions came from the Lviv-Warsaw School where Viennese philosophy was commented quite early, i.e., before the Circle went public. While the Lviv-Warsaw School philosophers sympathized with the urge to clarity and precision in philosophy, in general they distanced themselves from the Vienna Circle radical anti-metaphysical statement, or even rejected it as too vague or false.
