The strict empiricist account of meaning was also charged asmeaningless on the grounds that there is no coherent, clear, basiclevel of experience with which to test propositional claims. Theexperiential “given” is simply too malleable (thishas been called “the myth of the given”), often reflectingprior conceptual judgments and, once one appreciates the open-texturedcharacter of experience, it may be proposed that virtually anyexperience can verify or provide some evidence for anything. Amystic might well claim to experience the unity of a timeless spiriteverywhere present. Ayer allowed that in principle mysticalexperience might give meaning to religious terms. Those whoconcede this appeared to be on a slippery slope leading from empiricalverificationism to mystical verificationism (Alston 1991). Agrowing number of philosophers in the 1960s and 1970s were led toconclude that the empiricist challenge was not decisive. Criticalassessments of positivism can be found in work by, among others, AlvinPlantinga, Richard Swinburne, and John Foster.
