10 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
1. What is an analytic statement?
When the predicate is in the subject. Taking it apart. For example, man is a human and apples are fruit. These are a priori examples.
2. What is the basis on which the truth of all analytic statements rests?
On the subject
3. T or F The expression ‘a priori’ wasn’t mentioned in question #2 since all analytic statements are a priori anyway.
True
4. What is a synthetic statement?
A statement in which the subject term does not contain the predicate.
5. T or F Most, but not all, synthetic statements are a posteriori?
True
6. What does a priori mean, anyway? What about a posteriori?
A posteriori concerns knowledge that is gained through or after experience. A priori is knowledge you have before any experience (sense experience).
7. What is the basis on which the truth of all synthetic a posteriori statements rests (if they are true)?
Sense Experience
8. What two things are not the basis of the truth of all synthetic a priori statements?
The predicate is in the subject and it can neither be in the basis of analytic a priori and synthetic a posteriori.
9. According to Kant, all universals statements are 1)__________and all necessary statements are 2)__________.
1) Necessary. 2) Universal.
10. Would Kant regard the statement “Everything which happens has its cause.” As necessary? Would Hume agree?
Yes, because it is universal. Hume would not agree.
