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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This highly ambitious and wide-ranging study brings to light important chapters in the modern history of logic and philosophy of science, developed in Central and Eastern Europe, and scarcely known in the West, regrettably. It is a very valuable contribution. -- Noam Chomsky, MIT
This book is an important source on the 20th-century philosophical logic and analytic philosophy. The collected material is absolutely unique and exclusive. -- Dov M. Gabbay, professor, Department of Computer Science, King's College London
The history of science, mathematics and philosophy in Eastern Europe is largely a Terra Incognita in Western Europe and the USA. Andrew Schumann's new book is an illuminating work that casts light on many hitherto dark places and will open many minds in many different disciplines. -- James Pettifer, professor, Faculty of History, Oxford University
