Mario Augusto Bunge is an Argentine philosopher and physicist mainly active in Canada.
His thinking embodies global rationalism, scientific realism, materialism and consequentialism. Bunge has repeatedly and explicitly denied being a logical positivist, and has written on metaphysics, a topic dismissed by the Vienna Circle as meaningless. In the political arena, Bunge has defined himself as a "Left-wing liberal", in the tradition of the Argentine "positivist" movement of Jose Ingenieros and Carlos Octavio Bunge (his uncle).
One of Bunge's earliest American doctoral students was a future novelist named Chaim Potok; in Potok's first novel, The Chosen, there is a university professor named Abraham Flesser who makes a cameo appearance in chapter 13 and whose ideas bear a strong resemblance to those of Professor Bunge.
