Empiricism in Science and Philosophy

  • Errol E. Harris
Part of the Royal Institute of Philosophy Lectures book series (RIPL)


The term ‘Empiricism’ has had at least two different, though not unconnected, applications in modern thought, one to scientific method and the other to philosophical theory. My intention in this lecture is to try to show that, while these two applications of the term have a common source, their actual referents are widely divergent and in large measure even mutually incompatible.
