Philosophers Index Abstract

    The paper begins by showing that the a priori is not to be equated with the necessary or with the analytic, as many traditional philosophers have believed. Quinean attacks on the analytic/synthetic distinction and on the modalities1 do not, therefore, affect the prospect of a unified account of the a priori. Such an account is then provided.

For a précis, see this Note2.
