Stroud I 199f
Verificationism/Carnap: we cannot understand anything that cannot be proven true or false. - StroudVs: this failed, even as the attempt to pick out the empirically verifiable sentences. - Problem: verification methods and sentences that somehow involved "theory". - Or "inferred entities". - ((s)> theoretical entities.) - Stroud: but our concepts and our minds are not so strictly tied to "sensory experience". - (VsLogical Positivism). - Solution: verificationism would have had to explain how we confirm our belief by experience. - That did not work. - Then skepticism would have been defeated. - Verification principle (V.P.) and skepticism have the same problem. How our beliefs are empirically confirmed. - Skepticism is not refuted by the verification principle if we do not know if we are dreaming.
