Storyboard Text

  • Vienna School
  • AAHHHHH
  • SCHOOL!!
  • A.J Ayers verificationism
  • What colour is the chair?
  • Analytic approach
  • 2?
  • What is 1+1?
  • Ayers verificationism also known as logical positivism developed in the Vienna school in the 1930's.
  • Anthony Flew's Falsificationism.
  • verificationism states for a statement to be meaningful it must be empirically verifiable. For example, the chair is green as you can physically is being green.
  • Richard Swinburne's example
  • For Ayer a stamen must be empirically verifiable or analytic. Analytic means true by definition. For example 1+1=2, because we know through facts.
  • Parable of the partisan.
  • For a statement to be meaningful you must accept it could be true or false. The parable of the gardener shows two explores find a clearing on believes someone tend it, and the other doesn't. They both have to accept they could be right or wrong but their statements to be meaningful.
  • Intangable
  • inaudible
  • Swinburne uses the example of the child believing toys come alive at night. Despite the fact we know they don't, the statement is still meaningful to the child because the child wont accept they could be wrong, but to us the statement is meaningless.
  • Basil Mitchell came up with the parable of the partisan in response to Falsificationism. It sates the partisan meets the stranger who is part of the resistance, although there was evidence found to say they were working against the resistance.
  • No you aren't!!
  • I am part of the resistance
