Series II. Material relating to Rudolf Carnap, 1904-1994

Scope and Content Notes:

This series comprises different types of documents which are all authored by or related to Rudolf Carnap. Included are correspondence between Carnap and Benson pertaining primarily to the Schilpp volume, The Philosophy of Rudolf Carnap; lecture notes and manuscript drafts authored by Carnap; fragmentary, typed lists with handwritten additions in Carnap’s hand of his research, publications, lectures, and teaching activities; typed discussion notes between Carnap and Wilfrid Sellars; lecture notes by Herbert Feigl; foreign language publications of Carnap’s writings; corrections and additions by Benson sent to Martin Gardner for a revised edition of Carnap’s An Introduction to the Philosophy of Science; black and white photographic prints of Rudolf Carnap in class; and a few audio recordings of the Carnap memorial gathering in 1971 and commemorative German radio broadcasts of 1991. Some correspondence and notes concern Carnap’s donations of books and other material to UCLA’s research library and philosophy department. The original, chronological and topical order of the material is preserved.
