Logical Empiricism

Discipline: Philosophy

Version of empiricism applying to the meanings of words or sentences, whereby they have meaning only if there are rules involving sense-experience for applying or verifying them; the rules may also constitute the meaning. (Analytic sentences - that is, roughly, those made true or false by logical considerations - are excepted.)

Akin to, though some say slightly less rigorous than, logical positivism.
