Ingeborg Bachmann und der Wiener Kreis

  • Gerhard Donhauser Universität Klagenfurt und Universität Wien


When Ingeborg Bachmann began studying philosophy, the Vienna Circle of Logical Empiricism had long since ceased to exist. What Bachmann may have found in this regard at the University of Vienna were traces, and traces of the Vienna Circle can also be found in her dissertation. This article attempts to pursue both. Its path leads from a sketch of institutional philosophy at the University of Vienna in the years after 1945 via a concise overview of the Vienna Circle to the references to it in Bachmann's doctoral thesis.
