Mario Bunge

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.
