Carl Hempel on Empirical Meaning - Dictionary of Arguments

II 137
"Empirical Sense"/Hempel: the empirical sense depends:
1) on the linguistic framework which determines what other conclusions can be inferred and
2) on the theoretical context of auxiliary hypotheses.
II 138
The empirical meaning is only possible in ideal (formal) languages. Problem: "isolated statements" can contain metaphysical things without relation to the perception and may be omitted due to the syntactic structure. Different: statements with theoretical terms are syntactically always linked to observation terms (theoretical terms: refer to the unobservable).
