  • Sociologie des idéologies
CONT

Dans l'empirisme abstrait, l'objet de la vérification ne semble pas soulever de problème crucial. La procédure, elle, est directement fournie par les termes dans lesquels sont posés les problèmes; ceux-ci se ramènent à des procédures de corrélations et de statistiques.
