Among the original members of the Vienna Circle, only Moritz Schlick devoted any attention to ethics at all, and he regarded it as. Positivism is a philosophical theory stating that certain ("positive") knowledge is based on natural phenomena and their properties and relations. Thus, information derived from sensory experience, interpreted through reason and logic, forms the exclusive source of all certain knowledge. Positivism holds that valid knowledge (certitude or truth) is found only in this a posteriori knowledge.

    Consequently, the positivism dispute is also called the Second Werturteilsstreit. The precursor of the debate about positivism can be traced back to Max Horkheimer's essay "Der neueste Angriff auf die Metaphysik" ("The Latest Attack on Metaphysics") published in that criticizes the logical positivism of the Vienna Circle. arguments which Ayer himself put forwarded in this book in rejecting metaphysics is sufficient arguments which can be taken against the logical positivism itself.

Edited by a leading exponent of the school, this book offers--in the words of the movement's founders--logical positivism's revolutionary theories on meaning and metaphysics, the nature of logic and mathematics, the foundations of knowledge, the content of psychological propositions, ethics, sociology, and the nature of philosophy itself.

Logical positivists denied the soundness of metaphysics and traditional philosophy; they asserted that. The major work in this field came from the Aristotle’s book titled “metaphysics”.

The philosophy of science has an well-known history of magnetism and aversion towards metaphysics. The latter finds evidence in the Logical Positivist contention that metaphysical questions are meaningless.

Logical Positivism in Germany rose in response to the Metaphysics of Georg Hegel, which was the dominant philosophical view in Germany at. metaphysics in general by logical positivism. In short, in asserting that metaphysics is nonsense the logical positivists have identified a transcendental metaphysics with metaphysics, and failed to discern the possibility of a finite metaphysics.
