Introduction. Kurt Gödel's applied individual ethics

Eva-Maria Engelen
Universität Konstanz
For Gödel, the determining influence on the decision to subject his life to such a form of ethics likely came from one of the two men whom he called his teachers in the Grandjean Questionnaire: namely Heinrich Gomperz. It is unlikely, however, that the stimulus for this form of ethics came from Gomperz alone, since although many members of the Vienna Circle ultimately spoke out against this ethical form for the conduct of life, the question of self-perfection and its role in ethics was one that they certainly discussed.
