Positivism

Positivism

Positivism is a philosophy in which people believe the goal of knowledge is only to describe what people experience, and that science should only study that which is measurable. Anything that is not measurable or experienced is irrelevant. They also believe that knowledge should be obtained through using the scientific method. For example, emotions are not measurable so they are irrelevant. Likewise, introspection is rejected.
