Now, I reckon it's due to 3 months of sleeplessness; however, I could just be stoopid.
I'm reading through philosophy of the ages (various books which I combine to get to understand the nature of a priori, etc.) for the second time and I'm stumbling, fumbling and tripping over the same problem I had 15 years ago: Kant.
So, yeah, in case you didn't get it (and if you didn't, then you probably ain't gonna be able to help me; so move along, there's nothin' to see here folks), the title is a pun...
Now, I get the a priori / a posteriori thing; I get the whole analytic vs. synthentic thing. I just don't, on the other hand, understand the mingling of the two.
So please help! Thank.
What are a priori analytic and synthetic things?
What are a posteriori analytic and synthetic things?
Please don't point me towards Wiki, for I've been there and it still sounds like gobbly gook to me (is that racist? I wouldn't know).
