Philosophy {3} ~ A Priori/A Posteriori

A priori – Knowledge or justification independent of experience. For example, “All bachelors are unmarried.” By contrast, a posteriori knowledge or justification is dependent on experience or empirical evidence. For example, “Some bachelors are very happy.”

  1. Philosophy is like a blade sharp and has cutting edge but might not be true in all contexts if the background is not clear. But it’s one of the most effecient tools to break beliefs. It’s a good tool in the right hands else might prove dangerous. I always felt literature is sugar coated philosophy as we are engulfed in context and the operation with subtle philosophy operation is mostly successful. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

    1. I agree, philosophy is a great tool in own tool boxes through life, it expands our awareness horizons and how we see the world. I love your way of putting literature. 🙏🏻

      1. Just my humble opinion 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 I see all the epics, if read deeply with critical analysis and behavioral approach the characters (both living and non living) take or appear in the given circumstances, portray philosophical ideas in easy to swallow pills.. thanks for reading my comments 👍🏻🙏🏻
