Two Handles To Handle A Priori

Posted by Tanas Gjorgoski on February 25, 2008

Some rough thoughts about a priori understanding…

Need to learn to handle the idea that I can understand things without blaming anything else for it.
We need to deal with the fact that we can simply understand some things, without ‘blaming’ it on some things like analyticity, pure forms of intuition and pure concepts of understanding, evolution, and so on…

Need to know when I’ve won, and… enjoy it.
What I want in philosophy is understanding. It is weird when instead of respecting our ability to comprehend complex things, we want to push this understanding in some alternative form for it to count. To do that is begging the question against philosophy from the very start.
