Philosophy of mathematics in the early works of Moritz Schlick

Moritz Schlick never published any text specifically about the philosophy of mathematics. Nonetheless, his views on this topic influenced many of his other positions and the status of the subject was centrally important to the philosophical stances of many members of the Vienna Circle. Up to 1926, however, he regularly lectured on the philosophy of mathematics. These lectures are all based on one text, originally written in 1913, that was amended and corrected over the years, but remained substantially the same in content.
