Hume on The Epistemological Status of Metaphysical Statements
Keywords:words: analytic a priori, synthetic empirical, synthetic a priori, meaning
AbstractMy paper examines critically the widespread view that Hume confines meaningful propositions to those which are analytic (a priori), and those which are synthetic empirical, thereby rejecting synthetic a priori propositions as meaningful. What I show is that Hume does recognize certain metaphysical synthetic a priori propositions as meaningful, thereby dispelling the traditional view that Hume rejects all synthetic a priori as meaningful.Keywords: analytic a priori, synthetic empirical, synthetic a priori, meaning
