Abstract
Rudolf Carnap made substantial contributions in the areas of constructional theories, physicalism, the epistemological foundations of physics and mathematics, the syntactical structure of language, semantics, modal logic, and probability theory. Throughout his career he stressed the importance of formal analysis as the key to solving philosophical problems. His papers include extensive correspondence covering his entire life and career, lecture outlines for courses that he taught in Vienna, Prague, and the U.S.; and manuscript drafts and typescripts both for his published works and for many unpublished writings. Digital reproductions of this collection are available online.

Biography

Born in 1891 in Ronsdorf, Germany, Rudolf Carnap was educated at the Universities of Freiburg and Jena. He studied mathematics, philosophy, and physics, completing his doctoral thesis, Der Raum, in 1921. Before immigrating to America in 1935, Carnap held positions in Vienna and Prague, where he laid the foundations for his own logical empiricism and participated actively in the discussions of the Vienna Circle. After arriving in the United States, Carnap taught at the University of Chicago until 1952, was a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study from 1952 to 1954, and held a position at UCLA from 1954 until his death in 1970.

Carnap made substantial contributions in the areas of constructional theories, physicalism, the epistemological foundations of physics and mathematics, the syntactical structure of language, semantics, modal logic, and probability theory. Throughout his career he stressed the importance of formal analysis as the key to solving philosophical problems.

Scope and Content Notes

The Carnap Papers contain some 10,000 pages of letters to and from Carnap, which cover his entire life and career. Since Carnap relied heavily on the mail to discuss important philosophical problems, he corresponded with hundreds of other scholars, among them Herbert Feigl, Carl Gustav Hempel, Felix Kaufmann, Otto Neurath, and Moritz Schlick. A substantial collection of photographs taken throughout Carnap's life depicts him, his relatives, and a number of thinkers with whom he worked closely.

Among Carnap's student notes, perhaps the most interesting come from his seminars with Frege, which were devoted to the Begriffsschrift and the role of logic in mathematics. Also available are Carnap's notes from Russell's seminar at Chicago and notes he took from discussions with Quine, Tarski, Gödel, Hempel, Jeffrey, Heisenberg, and many others.

More than 1,000 pages of lecture outlines for courses that Carnap taught in Vienna, Prague, and the U.S. trace his development as a teacher. Moreover, the collection includes manuscript drafts and typescripts both for his published works and for many unpublished papers and books. In addition, two unpublished papers represent first formulations of Carnap's Aufbau. "Quasizerlegung" ("Quasianalysis," 1932, 21 pp.) outlines the analytical methods for defining quality classes, and "Vom Chaos zur Wirklichkeit" ("From Chaos to Reality," 1922, 14 pp.) represents his first attempt at a construction system using more than six basic relations, instead of one as in the Aufbau. "Topologie der Raum-Zeit-Welt" (Topology of the Space-Time World, 1924) is Carnap's 104-page attempt at a logical reconstruction of the space-time framework of modern physics without using numbers. These are only a few examples of Carnap's many unpublished papers.

The paper's correspondence and manuscripts measure 44.5 linear feet. Much material is written in an outdated German shorthand (the Stolze-Schrey system), which Carnap used extensively since his student days.

Arrangement

The Rudolf Carnap Papers are arranged into 28 series. Detailed scope and content notes can be found at each series level. When the Carnap Papers were initially processed, the intention was to preserve as much as possible Carnap's original filing system (and occasionally lack thereof) as to the order, content, and titles of the file folders. Therefore, unrelated items may appear in series groupings. In addition, some series may partially repeat in subject matter or format.

Scope and Content Notes

The photographs represented in this series span Carnap’s whole life, from his early years of his participation in the youth movement "Sera Kreis" to his later years in California. The images cover both personal and professional events, and many document Carnap’s and Ina’s extensive travels in Europe and the United States. Depicted are also Carnap’s family members, friends, and colleagues. The original arrangement and titles of the photographs were preserved. Please note, therefore, that despite the general topical grouping, some unrelated images can be found in each group.

Series  VII. Notes and Correspondence of Later Years and Manuscripts on Entropy, 1954-1970 

Scope and Content Notes

The first part of the series (subseries 1) contains notes and correspondence that accumulated during Carnap’s last years. The second part (subseries 2) includes manuscript drafts on the concept of "entropy," which were authored in the early to mid 1950s. In these drafts, Carnap developed the abstract concept of entropy for use in inductive logic.

Series  VIII. Early Manuscripts, Politische Rundbriefe, and Vienna Circle Records, 1908-1969 

Scope and Content Notes

This series centers mostly around Carnap’s earlier manuscript drafts, including early outlines of his later published works, as well as minutes of Vienna Circle meetings and the Vienna Circle voting sheets on Wittgenstein’s Tractatus. Included are also Carnap’s early Politische Rundbriefe from 1918, in which he initiated and promoted political discussions among his friends about the future of Europe and understanding among nations after the end of World War I. Folder headings starting with "Excerpts" followed by an individual's name and title appear to be notes Carnap took on that author's particular work or seminars. The original notes are usually in shorthand but some transcriptions do exist.

Series  X. Studies in Inductive Logic and Probability: Drafts, Discussions, Correspondence (see also related material in series II), 1948-1970 

Scope and Content Notes

Featured here is a variety of material reflecting Carnap's research in the area of probability, specifically during his later years. Many of the drafts relate to articles later published in the work Studies in Inductive Logic and Probability, such as the Carnap's manuscript "An Axiom System of Inductive Logic." This piece later evolved into "The Basic System of Inductive Logic, Part I," and "The Basic System of Inductive Logic, Part II," published in  Studies in Inductive Logic and Probability, Vol. I and II respectively. Included are also correspondence and manuscript drafts of other contributing authors such as Haim Gaifman, John Kemeny, Jürgen Humburg, and Richard Jeffrey, and discussion notes with Gordon Matthews and Lary Kuhns.

Series  XXVII. Name Index 

Scope and Content Notes

The Name Index gives the user a broad picture of the many people Carnap knew or with whom he corresponded from all over the world and throughout his life. The aim of this index is to make the Rudolf Carnap Papers more accessible to scholars. To do this we have compiled this list of names from Carnap’s correspondence, notes he made on people or their works, clippings which Carnap saved from magazines and newspapers, and so on. The list is limited to the names of people, i.e., philosophers, publishers, friends, students, and others, showing Carnap’s wide-ranging interests and interactions.

The names are arranged alphabeticaly. Beside each name is a number in parantheses which indicates the number of items the name occurs in the specific file.
