"Amongst the writings left behind by Schlick, a handwritten manuscript containing an outline of an extremely precise and significant philosophy of physics was discovered. This, his last manuscript, supplemented by the author's footnotes, comprises the main part of the present work. Since an investigation of the relations between biology and physics, although planned by Schlick, was not included in the manuscript, the editors have incorporated in the text exact notes of his lectures of 1927 (the last of which dealt with the relations of physics to biloogy)." - jacket.
