Unity of Science movement

Unity of Science movement

      movement within Logical Positivism that held that propositions in science should describe objectively existing, directly observable states of affairs or events and that there should be a unitary set of physical premises from which the regularities of all of reality could be derived. Thus, it is reductionist in its physicalist observationism and in its proposal for the unity of explanatory principles of science. See also unified science. (unified science)
