Biography

Carl Gustav Hempel was born in 1905 in Oranienburg, Germany. He studied mathematics, physics, and philosophy at the Universities of Göttingen, Heidelberg, Berlin, and Vienna. In 1929, he participated in a congress on scientific philosophy where he met Rudolf Carnap. Inspired by Carnap’s work, Hempel moved to Vienna during the winter semester of 1929-1930 and joined in the meetings of the Vienna Circle. After returning to Berlin, he earned his Ph.D. in 1934 for his work on probability under Hans Reichenbach, himself a major figure in the field of logical empiricism. The same year, Hempel and his first wife Eva left the increasingly repressive Germany and emigrated to Belgium, with the help of Paul Oppenheim, with whom he co-authored the book Der Typusbegriff im Lichte der neuen Logik in 1936. After three years of private research and writing, Hempel emigrated to the U.S. in 1937, accepting a position as Carnap’s research assistant in philosophy at the University of Chicago. Subsequently, he held positions at the City College of New York, Queens College, and Yale University, where he was promoted to the rank of Professor in 1953. During his Yale period, Hempel also spent a semester as a Visiting Professor at Columbia University in the fall of 1950, as a Hibben Research Fellow at Princeton in the spring of 1953, and a year as a Visiting Professor at Harvard University in 1953-1954. In 1955, Hempel joined the Princeton faculty as a Stuart Professor of Philosophy. He came to the University of Pittsburgh in 1976 as a University Professor of Philosophy and stayed until 1985, when he returned to Princeton. On November 9, 1997, Hempel died at age 92 near his home in Princeton Township, New Jersey.

Hempel was a philosopher of science who played a central role in the development of logical positivism or logical empiricism. In his early years, he was a member of the so called Berlin Circle ("Gesellschaft für wissenschaftliche Philosophie"), a Berlin counterpart to the Vienna Circle. Hempel’s work is mainly associated with the concept of deductive-nomological explanation and with the Raven paradox. In 1948, Hempel developed with Paul Oppenheim a logically precise theory known as the Deductive-Nomological, or Covering Law, Model of Explanation, which sees scientific laws and theories as systematizing otherwise unwieldy bodies of particular empirical claims. To deal with probabilistic explanation, Hempel articulated an Inductive-Statistical Model in 1962. He also developed models of historical and functional explanation in the biological and social sciences, as well as of historical explanation. Those models shaped all subsequent work on scientific explanation.

Hempel also sought to describe the conditions under which particular reports of observation may be said to confirm general hypothesis. His famous Raven Paradox exemplifies the logical challenge: Since the hypothesis (1) "All ravens are black" can be reformulated equivalently as (2) "All non-black things are non-ravens," the report of non-black non-ravens (e.g., white shoes) would seem to confirm (1) just as would the report of black ravens. Hempel then proposed a quantitative method for determining the degree of confirmation of any hypothesis by particular statements of evidence.

Hempel was author of the influential books Aspects of Scientific Explanation and Other Essays in the Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Natural Science, which have been translated into ten languages. He held Guggenheim and Fulbright fellowships and served as a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford and as an honorary research fellow in philosophy at University College, London. He also was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the Académie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences and American Philosophical Society, and a corresponding fellow of the British Academy.


Collection Scope and Content Notes

The papers originate from Hempel’s office at Princeton University. The majority of the material was organized by Hempel according to various filing systems. Whenever possible, the original order has been maintained. The greater part of the papers is in English, but a considerable amount is also in German, and a few items are in French. The papers feature some early, pre-immigration material from Hempel’s European period while living in Berlin, Vienna, and Brussels. The majority of the documents, however, stem from his post-immigration period in the U.S. The papers are divided into five series. Hempel’s biographical material covers mainly the years 1928 to 1966 and comprises personal and educational records, such as diaries, notebooks, diplomas, and professional records, e.g. curricula vitae and employment correspondence. The correspondence series extends from the 1920s to the 1990s, with the bulk of the material concentrating on the years 1940-1990. The correspondence is subdivided into general correspondence; exchanges between Hempel, Paul Oppenheim, and Kurt Grelling; contacts between Hempel, Oppenheim, and other correspondents; family correspondence; and letters of recommendation, which are currently closed to research access. Documents in the research, lectures and publications series consist of Hempel’s research manuscripts and notes, lecture drafts, book inserts, and a variety of material pertaining to his conference participations, contributions, and publications, generally focusing on the years 1950 to 1990. Manuscripts on both the Carus and Gavin David Young lectures are contained in two separate subseries. Hempel’s teaching materials include folders he prepared for his graduate and undergraduate classes, in particular at the Universities of Yale, Princeton, and Pittsburgh, mostly covering the years 1949-1985. It also features a few dissertations and administrative documents. Please note that due to the sensitive and confidential nature of some of the material, access to this series is restricted. Finally, the offprints series is divided into offprints authored by Hempel and offprints authored by others. Offprints of others’ publications are organized from A-Z according to author. Most of them contain handwritten annotations and dedications to Hempel, and some prominent authors in the field are featured.

Series II. Correspondence, 1924-1997

Scope and Content Notes:

All correspondence is arranged alphabetically according to the personal or institutional name of the correspondent. Generally, each exchange contains correspondence between Hempel and the named individual or institution. Within each folder items are arranged chronologically with the most recent document first. This arrangement essentially follows Hempel’s original filing system. In some instances, where the exchange consists of only a few items, one folder can comprise two or more correspondents, which is indicated by a range of names in the folder title instead of one single name. Please note that Hempel sometimes filed topical items within the correspondence series. In these cases, the topic (mostly conferences or events) is listed in the heading instead of a personal name. For example, material relating to Hempel’s China lectures can be found both in the correspondence file under ‘C’ and in the series of Hempel’s lectures. Please also note that some pieces of correspondence that are of confidential or sensitive nature are closed. This case will be indicated by the term ‘closed’ in square brackets following the folder heading.

Subseries 1. General Correspondence, 1930-1996

Scope and Content Notes:

The general correspondence covers both personal and professional correspondence and involves individuals and institutions discussing professional, academic, as well as personal issues. Some exchanges are brief whereas others might extent over several folders, involving for the most part individuals Hempel stayed in close contact with throughout his life, e.g. his exchanges with Rudolf Carnap and Herbert Feigl; or they reflect close relationships during certain time periods, like his correspondence with Albrecht Becker-Freyseng during the late 1920s and early 1930s. The general correspondence illustrates furthermore Hempel’s involvement in various projects, collaborations, and his affiliation with several institutions. Examples are substantial communications with the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford, and with Wolfgang Essler documenting their collaboration on reviving and editing the journal Erkenntnis during the 1970s and 1980.

Subseries 2. Correspondence between Paul Oppenheim, Kurt Grelling, and C.G. Hempel and Related Material, 1930-1974

Scope and Content Notes:

The Oppenheim-Hempel-Grelling correspondence testifies to Hempel’s and Paul Oppenheim’s ultimately failing efforts to help Kurt Grelling and his family to immigrate to the U.S. during their internment in camps in southern France under the Vichy regime during 1940-1942. Grelling and his wife died in 1942, probably at the concentration camp of Auschwitz or Birkenau.

Subseries 3. General Lecture Notes, 1935-1992

Scope and Content Notes:

Hempel’s writings and recollections about the Vienna Circle are part of this subseries, compiled in five folders titled "Empiricism Berlin and Vienna." Hempel apparently gathered this material in preparation for various lectures and talks on the Vienna Circle. However, no original documents from the Berlin Circle are included here. The only items of that period are letters to Albrecht Becker-Freyseng reporting about his studies and impressions of the Vienna Circle while studying in Vienna during the winter semester of 1929-1930 and comparing the Berlin and Viennese academic environments. Additional correspondence with Albrecht Becker-Freyseng can be found in the correspondence series.

Series IV. Teaching [RESTRICTED], 1937-1985

Scope and Content Notes:

Due to the confidential nature of many documents in this series, users will have to consult with the curator first to see if access can be granted.

This series comprises a variety of documents relating to Hempel’s teaching and educational activities, e.g. course notes, syllabi, exams, and reading lists. In general, Hempel’s original folder units were maintained. In cases where Hempel organized his teaching material according to courses, indicated by the course number, several folders for the same course are grouped together and then arranged chronologically within that group. When only one folder exists or the documents do not refer to a specific course, folders are arranged chronologically. In addition, Hempel filed together reprints that he used for teaching. As a result, the teaching material is divided into five subseries. The course notes are comprised in two subseries, one organized according to course number, the other according to chronological order; and the third subseries comprises reprints used for teaching.
