Abstract:I aim to stand the received view about verificationism on its head. It is commonly thought that verificationism is a powerful philosophical tool, which we could deploy very effectively if only it weren’t so hopelessly implausible. On the contrary, I will argue. Verificationism – if properly construed – may well be true. But its philosophical applications are chimerical.
