Yes, this is still an issue in analytic philosophy of which Carnap was one of the founding fathers (further developed by Quine and Popper). But as usual it is highly controversial, e.g., John Passmore (1967) found logical positivism to be "dead, or as dead as a philosophical movement ever becomes." (see Wikipedia.en on "Logical positivism")

"According to this view, the sentences of metaphysics are pseudo-sentences which on logical analysis are proved to be either empty phrases or phrases which violate the rules of syntax. Of the so-called philosophical problems, the only questions which have any meaning are those of the logic of science. To share this view is to substitute logical syntax for philosophy." Rudolf Carnap, "Logical Syntax of Language" (1934\1937).
