This chapter discusses a commitment to epistemological externalism and empiricism. It has often been claimed that empiricism cannot deal properly with the a priori. The chapter describes the most common worries and expresses sympathy with them; but it argues that since the account of a priori arithmetical knowledge that the chapter envisages is very different from the existing empiricist accounts of the a priori, the existing critiques do not apply.

Keywords:   a priori, arithmetical knowledge, existing critiques
