Famous quotes containing the words rudolf carnap and/or carnap:

    Logic is the last scientific ingredient of Philosophy; its extraction leaves behind only a confusion of non-scientific, pseudo problems.
    Rudolf Carnap (1891–1970)

    Science is a system of statements based on direct experience, and controlled by experimental verification. Verification in science is not, however, of single statements but of the entire system or a sub-system of such statements.
    —Rudolf Carnap (1891–1970)
