 The Conservative Philosopher Moritz Schlick as a Conservative
Moritz Schlick (1882-1936) is another founding father of analytic philosophy who had politically conservative tendencies, which is somewhat surprising given his role as one of the leading lights of the Vienna Circle of logical positivists (not exactly a hotbed of reactionary sentiment).
Barry Smith’s Austrian Philosophy: The Legacy of Franz Brentano quotes Heinrich Neider as recounting that “Schlick was a man who had no sympathy at all for politics and the state; he was a liberal in the old sense, for whom the fire brigade and the police were admitted as at best a necessary evil.

 Phil 255 - RQs Schlick - Realism and Positivism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Schlick opens with a discussion of how, as philosophical movements evolve, their proponents come to have different understandings of the movement’s fundamental principles, and how this causes them (and their opponents) to talk “at cross purposes” (37).
The only way to avoid this, and other problems caused by naive inattention to the meaning (or lack thereof) of philosophical terms, is to get as clear as possible on the meanings of philosophical propositions.
Schlick considers the objection that while verifiability may be necessary for a claim to be meaningful, verifiability does not exhaust the meaning of a claim, there is something more to the meaning of a claim than what is verifiable.
