Entry from British & World English dictionary
The characteristic doctrine of logical positivism, that a statement which cannot be verified is strictly meaningless.
- For a review of other attacks on, and adjustments to, the verification principle, see Wright 1986, 1989.
- The reason this failed is that the verification principle itself is not a tautology, nor is it verifiable.
- However, perhaps the main problem with the approach is that the verification principle itself is too vague.
