This chapter outlines Carl Hempel's philosophical development in broad perspective. One little-appreciated fact that becomes clear in our discussion is that the Vienna Circle had less influence on Hempel than did the Berlin Group. Tracing this influence involves presenting seminal doctrines of Hempel's masters and of his academic associates. The ultimate aim here is to locate Hempel's place in the history of twentieth-century philosophy of science.
