Grazer Schule#

Graz School (Grazer Schule), movement in philosophy and psychology at the University of Graz around 1900; it particularly promoted the study of philosophy in Austrian secondary schools and the new experimental psychology at Graz, mainly through A. Meinong's "Philosophische Sozietaet" ("society of philosophy"), his philosophy class (1897 onwards) and his laboratory of experimental psychology (1894). Based on F. Brentano, the Graz School adhered to realist epistemology and aimed at turning philosophy into an exact science. It contributed greatly to the development of modern psychology of thinking. Representatives: A. Meinong, A. Hoefler, S. Witasek, V. Benussi, E. Mally, E. Martinak.
