The fundamental tenet of logical empiricism is that the warrant for all scientific knowledge rests upon empirical evidence in conjunction with logic, where logic is taken to include induction or confirmation, as well as mathematics and formal logic (see evidence and confirmation).This appears to conflict strongly with Thomas Kuhn's famous statement that scientific theory choice depends on.   Abstract.
