  • The epistemological view that knowledge must originate in sensory experience. Empiricists deny that knowledge may originate through nonsensory channels such as intuition or innateness. The scope of empiricism can vary. For instance, concept empiricism maintains that sense experience is our only source of our knowledge of concepts. Belief empiricism maintains that all propositional knowledge, that is, knowledge expressible in sentences that can be true or false, must originate in experience.
