History of Science

Ernst Mach dies. As a physicist and philosopher, Mach's radical empiricism led him to argue that natural science should only concern itself with describing human sensations without regard to external causes.

Ernst Mach's ideas became instrumental in the development of logical positivism and his 1886 book The Analysis of Sensations is an important influence on the development of modern psychology because it describes a theory of perception which is similar to that of Gestalt psychology.
