The Vienna Circle – Exact Thinking in Demented Times

Exhibition at the University of Vienna

The Vienna Circle was an extraordinary association of philosophers, mathematicians, natural scientists and humanists to develop and disseminate an academic world view from 1924 to 1936. This exhibition sheds some light on the extraordinary intellectual and cultural achievements of the Vienna Circle while also focusing on the terrible anti-semitic and political persecution that finally led to its dissolution. This exhibition displays valuable objects from the collections of scientific archives.

If you're interested in visiting this exhibition, it is open daily Monday - Saturday from 10:00 to 18:00. It's located in the main building of the university (our venue), on the left of the main entrance. Admission is free.
