The logic of science is thus the connotative questions.

In such an analysis we can start of philosophy as logic of science is anfrom but two different viewpoints; we shall swered: it is the formal structure theory of call them connotative (inhaltlich) and for- the language of science, - we shall call mal.

For one, the concern with language is nothing new in first philosophy or, if you please, epistemology and metaphysics. Certainly all "minute philosophers" have shared it. For another, there is strictly speaking no such thing as the philosophy of language. Language may be studied by philologists, aestheticians, and scientists such as psychologists or sociologists. To bring these studies thoughtfully together is well worth while. Customarily, such synoptic efforts are called philosophy. There is no harm in this provided they are not mistaken for what they are not, namely, technical philosophy.

But this formulation leads to a maze of pseudo-problems. In using the formal mode of expression it becomes clear that one is dealing only with the relation of both part-languages, that of psychology and that of physics, or to be more accurate still, with the manner of the syntactical derivation relations (translation rules) between the propositions of both these languages. With the formulation of the psycho-physical problem in the formal mode of expression the problem surely is not yet solved; it may still be quite difficult to find the solution.
