Phenomenalism


core definition

Phenomenalism is at the heart of positivism as it accepts that physical objects can be known as they appear as perceived phenomena.


explanatory context

Phenomenalism is thus opposed to the idea of a reality behind surface appearances. (This issue clearly separates postivism from Marxism and phenomenology).

 

Phenomenalism should not be confused with phenomenology.
