Among philosophers, too, we find a fair number of war propagandists. This paper deals with the nascent subdiscipline philosophy of science, drawing on correspondence and diaries. The most important young philosophers of science (the oldest was 33) either reacted with naïve enthusiasm (Rudolf Carnap, at least initially), or opposed the war (Moritz Schlick, Otto Neurath, Hans Reichenbach), or were completely apolitical and preoccupied with themselves (Hugo Dingler). The only war propagandist was Heinrich Scholz. During the war, however, Scholz was still a theologian, who moved to philosophy of science only after the war---after reading the Principia Mathematica of the pacifist-inclined Bertrand Russell. Among German scholars of the time, we find a feeling of being collectively humiliated by the rest of the world. This presumed humiliation they took as justification for war. I see alarming parallels to sentiments with scholars in present day Russia and in large parts of the Islamic World.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Clash of Cultures? : German Philosophers of Science and the Great War (1914-1918)</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Wolters, Gereon</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/39296/3/Wolters_0-411412.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Wolters, Gereon</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/39296"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
