It is an empiricism without metaphysical essences, powers, faculties, causes, substances, elements, or qualities, but it does not constitute a new idea of science. Sanches continues to use ordinary, traditional medical language, depriving it of its metaphysical fundaments and scientific validity without concretely identifying any new way to positively connect this scepticism with the requirements of a new empiricism. Instead, conjecture, probability, verisimilitude, reasonableness, art, praxis, and experience replace the scientific apparatus of scientia but assume the impossibility of “perfect knowledge” as a limiting factor and the conjectural, empirical understanding as a lesser form of knowledge.
