PL 201 Week 3 Assignment "Short Paper on Kant"

Short Paper on Kant

Kant famously–and controversially–argued that some knowledge is “synthetic a priori.” Can you explain in your own words what Kant might have meant by this, and can you give an example of the sort of knowledge that Kant believed possessed this strange status?

HINT: To answer this question in a clear and well-organized manner, you should first explain and illustrate Kant’s distinction between a priori and a posteori knowledge and then his distinction between analytic and synthetic judgments. After that, explain what he means by “synthetic a priori,” give at least one example, and then demonstrate why it is so important for our learning things about the world.


Please ensure that your essay addresses each component of the assigned questions and that your answer is well-organized, uses excellent, college-level prose, and makes judicious use of textual evidence. Your essay should be 600-900 words long.
