Empiricist Marxists have rarely analyzed the differences between true business profit and statistical profit figures, but the empirical arguments about profitability among empiricist Marxists have to deal with five ideas:
A classic example of inductive reasoning comes from the empiricist David Hume:
During the 1750s he was sponsored by the empiricist philosopher David Hume
The Berlin Circle () was a group that maintained logical empiricist views about philosophy.

His approach is distinct from foundationalism, empiricist or otherwise, as well as from coherentism, by the following three dimensions:
In "Empiricism and Experience", Gupta proposes a novel empiricist account of the logical relation between perceptual experience and knowledge.
An article in "Philosophy of Recent Times" has described this book as an "attempt to expound a psychological system of logic within empiricist principles.”
Jenner, like all members of the Royal Society in those days, was an empiricist. The theory to support further advances in vaccination came later.
The roots of the social constructionist movement in psychology are related to the criticism of the objectivism assumed by positivist/empiricist concepts of knowledge (Gergen, 1985).
In 2006 Corry was an Invited Speaker at the ICM in Madrid with talk "On the origin of Hilbert's sixth problem: physics and the empiricist approach to axiomatization".
Although quite empiricist, American logician Willard Van Orman Quine published the 1951 paper "Two Dogmas of Empiricism", which challenged conventional empiricist presumptions. Quine attacked the analytic/synthetic division, which the verificationist program had been hinged upon in order to entail, by consequence of Hume's fork, both necessity and apriocity. Quine's ontological relativity explained that every term in any statement has its meaning contingent on a vast network of knowledge and belief, the speaker's conception of the entire world. Quine later proposed naturalized epistemology.
The problem that naturally follows is how statements are to be verified. An empiricist would say that it can only be done using empirical evidence. So some form of reductionism - "the belief that each meaningful statement is equivalent to some logical construct upon terms which refer to immediate experience" - must be assumed in order for an empiricist to 'save' the notion of analyticity. Such reductionism, says Quine, presents just as intractable a problem as did analyticity.
However, it is important to distinguish between empiricist versus rationalist models of this. One may thus distinguish between rationalist ethical intuitionism for the rationalist version and "moral sense theory" for the empiricist version. (This will be the use of the terms here. However, the terminology is not ultimately important, so long as one keeps in mind the relevant differences between these two models of non-inferential moral knowledge.)
The concept of a scientific theory has also been described using analogies and metaphors. For instance, the logical empiricist Carl Gustav Hempel likened the structure of a scientific theory to a "complex spatial network:"
In modern psychology, inspiration is not frequently studied, but it is generally seen as an entirely internal process. In each view, however, whether empiricist or mystical, inspiration is, by its nature, beyond control.

There are many variants of empiricism, positivism, realism and common sense being among the most commonly expounded. But central to all empiricist epistemologies is the notion of the epistemologically privileged status of sense data.
