Czy potrzebna nam jest opozycja aprioryczne – aposterioryczne?
DO WE REALLY NEED AN OPPOSITION BETWEEN A PRIORI AND A POSTERIORI?
Languages of publication
I present modifications of the notion of the a priori knowledge (beliefs) or justification executed in the recent epistemological conceptions, and discuss difficulties raised in their empiricist criticisms. Next, I discuss a naturalist and a metaphysical extreme approaches to the a priori, and give arguments against the need for the acceptance of the a priori versus a posteriori opposition. My arguments refer to contemporary philosophical processes: the abandonment of the abstract concept of the cognizing subject, the rejection of the concept of language as a logical representational structure, and the demise of the ideal of episteme.
