It is largely because of the anticipated a priori status of analytic truths that philosophers have been interested in analyticity, but the existence of a priori justification is itself a difficult topic. This chapter explores the epistemological significance of analyticity. It examines three theories of analytic justification, (while remaining neutral about whether or not that analytic justification can be considered a kind of a priori justification), and uses the failures of the first two to motivate acceptance of the third.
