From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Naïve empiricism is a term used in several ways in different fields.

In the philosophy of science, it is used by opponents to describe the position, associated with some logical positivists, that "immediate sense experience is by itself sufficient to provide the foundations for knowledge".[1]

The term also is used to describe a particular methodology for literary analysis.[2]
