This paper examines the concept of protocol sentences within the framework of logical positivism. Protocol sentences, as discussed by proponents of logical positivism, serve as foundational elements in the verification of empirical statements. They are considered basic observational statements that are directly verifiable through sensory experience. The analysis explores the role of protocol sentences in shaping the logical positivist approach to scientific inquiry and the verification principle. Additionally, the paper discusses the significance of protocol sentences in distinguishing between meaningful and meaningless statements, thereby contributing to the broader epistemological and methodological discussions within logical positivism. Through a critical examination of the concept of protocol sentences, this paper sheds light on their implications for understanding the nature of empirical knowledge and the scientific method within the logical positivist framework.
