Philosophy of Science Historical Critique. Mach wrote a number of widely read science history texts; in a sense they are archaeologies of Biological Origins of Science. Mach puts science on a continuum with earlier human activity, in fact with earlier Biological Purpose of Science.

The work of a brilliant polymath, Mach's Analysis was translated into English inand presents his extreme empiricism in lucid and persuasive form. The object of science, he writes, is just 'the connection of phenomena'; theories are likened to 'dry leaves which fall away' when they have ceased to be useful/5(14).

Ernst Mach () is a representative figure of the early positivist philosophy of science in physics at the turn of the twentieth century. He earned a doctorate in physics from the University of Vienna intaught experimental physics for most of his career at the University of Prague (), and then held the chair of Inductive Philosophy at the University of Vienna ().

verifiable through the senses) are cognitively meaningful, or else they are truths of logic (tautologies). Verificationism thus rejects as cognitively "meaningless" statements specific to.The required citation reference for this material is Twentieth-Century Philosophy of Science by Thomas J.
