Empiriocriticism as a Philosophy of Pure Experience. ( E. Mach, R. Avenarius)
Philosophy
(Bachelor’s programme)
2016
The research is concerned on the Mach’s and Avenarius ideas of metaphysics and “pure experience”. This work is aimed to show that Mach and Avenarius created absolutely new epistemological movement which changed philosophy of science. In addition it tries demonstrate the failure of the critics of the second positivism as their reasoning don’t seems strong and convincing. The results show us that Empiriocriticism don’t lead to subjective idealism as it’s critics wrote. Besides, the study demonstrate that philosophy of science could be used for creating a methodology for natural sciences. Besides, this project demonstrates that way of philosophy getting back to natural sciences is the one possible solution to the epistemological problem and it’s the only way to avoid metaphysics.
