The logical positivists have condemned and rejected metaphysics for a variety of reasons. Whereas, Wittgenstein rejects and condemns metaphysics because of the unverifiability or lack of objective reference of metaphysical statements and assertions, Rudolf Carnap rejects it because, the linguistic analysis of metaphysical statements shows them to be devoid of any meaning of sense.

According to Carnap, the metaphysical statements are sterile. They may have literal meaning and may follow the rules of syntax but, on closer analysis they quite obviously are meaningless and senseless.
