  1. empiricist philosophy

    Empiricist philosophy is a school of philosophical thought that emphasizes the importance of sensory experience and observation in the formation of ideas and knowledge, rather than relying on innate ideas or introspection. It asserts that all knowledge is derived from experiences, particularly those interpreted through reason and logic. Therefore, empiricists often prioritize the scientific method and believe that sense perceptions, experiments, analysis, and testing help us understand the world around us better.
