On the contrary, since the years of the first edition of Allgemeine Erkenntnislehre, Schlick did not seem willing to concede anything to Kantianism. On this point he criticizes both Cassirer and Reichenbach, and maintains that the essential characteristic of the Kantian synthetic a priori is the connection, in the very same concept, between the apodeictic certainty and the constitutive value. Consequently, he does not make a distinction between the two meanings of Kantian synthetic a priori, thereby avoiding its adoption in any of its two senses.

In order to provide an answer, he discusses again the relationship between the Austrian and German-Kantian components underlying the movement and links his paper to the recent debate on the distinction between analytic and continental philosophy. According to Uebel, “it was the co-operation of the members” of the “early circle of philosophically minded Austrian scientists – the mathematician Hans Hahn, the physicist Philipp Frank and the economist Otto Neurath – with the scientifically trained German philosophers Moritz Schlick and Rudolf Carnap that accounted for the distinctive force of Viennese Logical Empiricism”.
