This chapter aims to show Wolff’s conception of experience from different points of view. On the one hand Wolff maintains that experience offers the principles of scientific knowledge, guaranteed by deductive reasoning, while, on the other hand, he talks of experience in a broader sense, i.e. as factual knowledge, that consists of empirical generalisations supported by the expectation of similar cases (expectatio casuum similium).

Experience and knowledge in Wolff’s philosophy

Abstract

This chapter aims to show Wolff’s conception of experience from different points of view. On the one hand Wolff maintains that experience offers the principles of scientific knowledge, guaranteed by deductive reasoning, while, on the other hand, he talks of experience in a broader sense, i.e. as factual knowledge, that consists of empirical generalisations supported by the expectation of similar cases (expectatio casuum similium).
