This paper is an attempt to explain the relation between philosophy of logical positivism, on the one hand, and political philosophy on the other. The author's starting point is the assumption that logical positivists did not get involved in political philosophy and that one can only indirectly draw conclusions about this relation. On the example of political activities of logical positivists in Austria between the two world wars, this paper explores whether logical positivists were leftist and egalitarian political philosophers. The second part of the paper investigates Neurath's view of the success of Serbia in the „Customs War" and the „Balkan Wars." On the basis of Neurath's analysis the author demonstrates that the political philosophy of logical positivism would embrace theoretical and value pluralism.
