Introduction to Philosophy: Term Paper The textbook, and this class, has typically presented different philosophical theories, given reasons to accept the theory and then given some difficulties the theory has.

The Importance of Empiricism
Empiricism is not a particularly well-regarded philosophical theory. If rationalism affirms
that reason knows without the need of experience – or, moreover, that every empirical factor
needs to be put aside so that reason, understood as an innate faculty, functions to its greatest
extent – empiricism sustains the exact opposite. For empiricists, all knowledge derives from
sensory experience; this is the only source of knowledge and without it, there is no such thing as
knowledge. Though some have called empiricism reductive, because of “the belief that each
