Analyticity and Syntheticity

Analyticity and Syntheticity

(p.280) (p.281) Chapter 9 Analyticity and Syntheticity
The Taming of the True

Neil Tennant

Oxford University Press

This chapter re-examines the much maligned notion of analyticity. It suggests that a major reason why various philosophers have had trouble applying the analytic-synthetic distinction is that they have been affected by an unarticulated dogma. It contends that once this dogma is challenged and its contradictory asserted, light can be shed once again and the equilibrium of analytic empiricism can be restored.

Keywords:   analyticity, analytic-synthetic distinction, dogma, syntheticity, analytic empiricism
