    Contemporary developments

    From the twentieth century, new currents of thought were born that refer to innatist positions, in particular cognitive psychology. It should also be noted that today no one radically denies the existence of innate factors, or vice versa acquired, in the genesis of behavior. The difference between empiricists and innatists should be seen rather on the basis of the emphasis that is put on the first factors rather than on the second. The twentieth-century rebirth of empiricism will take the name of logical empiricism and will have the logic-formal techniques of language analysis as verification tools.
