    "As a materialist I think every thing is made of matter, akin to naturalism. If someone claims, say, that a statue of Mary cried a tear, the materialist would point out: the substance that the rock is made out of, is all it is, and is no different than the rock before it was extracted from the earth, only that it has been shaped. Thus materialism is an important premise for my deductive and inductive reasoning.

    Empiricism is the statement that everything that we know, we know through our direct senses, or some other aided observation (an empiricist would be fine with a microscope). Traditionally empiricists reject the idea of innate ideas, being entirely skeptical that intuitions and instinct could reliably inform our knowledge.

    So the difference is pretty substantial. There are plenty of materialists who are not strict empiricists: that is, they think that only matter exists, but that some truth is innate in our brain and certain facts can be determined through intuitive reasoning. Empiricists, on the other hand, don't necessarily have to believe that all that exists is matter. Indeed, George Berkeley is famous for being both a strong empiricist and 'immaterialist'." -Oct 31, 2009 by user 'Hamandcheese' : https://philosophy.stackexchange.com/questions/1377/what-if-any-are-the-differences-between-materialism-and-empiricism
