You messed up. You’re in trouble. But don’t worry, logical positivism can help

We all hate getting yelled at, especially when we mess up. Fortunately, there’s a solution: logical positivism was a philosophical revolution that introduced a new theory of meaning – one that shook philosophy to its core. Strangely enough, it can also give you a convenient way out of a sticky situation.
