James’ pragmatism was welcomed in Vienna with much more interest and sympathy than in Germany. Mach knew James’ work fairly well and the two of them corresponded for many years. Thanks to the German translation of Pragmatism provided by Wilhelm Jerusalem, the first "Vienna circle" read and appreciated James’ work. Philipp Frank, Hans Hahn and Otto Neurath established a pragmatist current that would emerge more and more in the ’20s and in the ’30s, and that would eventually result in a convergence with James’ conception of truth, experience, and method of knowledge.
