I believe learning occurs naturally in the learner when a teacher has presented the material in a way that works for the learner. This was the goal of the reductionist project. By showing that every apparently unverifiable claim in science could be analyzed into a small set of observation-sentences, the logical positivists hoped to show that the gap between observation and theory does not really exist.
