The history of logic and analytic philosophy in Central and Eastern Europe is still known to very few people. As an exception to the rule, only two scientific schools became internationally popular: the Vienna Circle and the Lvov-Warsaw School. Nevertheless, the countries included in this region have not only joint history, but also joint cultural dynamics. This book is a collection of rare material regarding logical and analytic-philosophical traditions in Central and Eastern European countries, covering the period from the late nineteenth century to the early twenty-first century. An encyclopedic feature covers the history of logic and analytic philosophy in all European post-Socialist countries: Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Eastern Germany, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine. The cultural and social context of this philosophy is considered as well.
