These volumes shape a whole portrait of Hans Reichenbach, from the varsity boy and collage pupil to the maturing and inventive student, who was once to boot an immensely committed instructor and a talented well known author and speaker on technology and philosophy. We chosen the articles for a number of purposes. a lot of them haven't pre­ viously been on hand in English; many are out of print, both in English or in German; a few, specifically the early ones, were little recognized, and care for subject-matters except philosophy of technological know-how. The genesis and evolu­ tion of Reichenbach's principles seemed to be of deep curiosity, and so we in­ cluded papers from 4 many years, regardless of occasional redundancy. We have been, for instance, happy to incorporate his broad overview article from the encyclo­ pedic Handbuch der Physik of 1929 on 'The goals and strategies of actual Knowledge', written at a time of inventive collaboration among Reichenbach's Berlin crew and the Vienna Circle of Schlick and Carnap. Reichenbach used to be a pioneer, commencing new pathways to the answer of age-old difficulties in lots of fields: house, time, causality, induction and chance - philosophical research and interpretation of classical physics, relativity and quantum physics - good judgment, language, ethics, medical clarification and method, serious appreciation and reconstruction of prior metaphysical thinkers and scientists from Plato to Leibniz and Kant. certainly, his personal philosophical trip was once initiated by means of his passage from Kant to anti-Kant.

UNIVERSITY STUDENT: CARL LANDAUER 29 In the face of these attacks, the leaders of the youth movement felt rather helpless. They lacked the skill in debating issues, in defending a position in speech and print, that we had acquired in the Freie Studentenschaft. Feeling helpless, they did what even good and honest people have often done from weakness: they separated themselves from those in their group who seemed to be most vulnerable to the enemy's arrows. They drew a thick line between themselves and the Wickersdorfers; as it appeared to us, they threw Wyneken to the wolves.
