Several years ago, I wrote up a little four-page summary of Carnap’s Logical Syntax of Language , and spent some time working through his “Empiricism, Semantics, and Ontology” as well. The summary is written for those with little to no math or logic background, and I’ve sincerely tried to make it as easy and accessible as possible. There is, of course, a chance I’ve left out far too much. I’ve decided to share it, and you can find it here:
If you have any questions, or have noticed something that I messed up (or if I am misrepresenting Carnap’s view), please leave me a comment!
Note: I tex-ed it up a while ago, and haven’t looked it over in years, so please forgive any and all typos!
