- n. Empiricism.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Turner (1993) has argued that Helmholtz's empirism was pragmatic-that Helmholtz adopted an empirist stance to meet the challenges of “imposing order on a chaotic new field of investigation” and of defending a strong stance in his lifelong debate with his nemesis, Ewald Hering
The dispute between Hering and Helmholtz is significant because of its import for the larger debate, in physiology and psychology, between empirism and nativism.
The most significant issues in the empirism versus nativism debate are how to explain perception of depth and relief.
Ei au fost atacat empirism noastre, şi atacat o cultură nu se bazează pe legile Abrahimic religioase.
It looks a little as if the ancient english empirism, so long put out of fashion here by nobler sounding germanic formulas, might be repluming itself and getting ready for a stronger flight than ever.
