A Priori

Ainhoa Trigo Mogollon

The terms a priori ("from the former") are used in philosophy to distinguish two types of knowledge, justifications or arguments. A priori knowledge or justification is independent of experience or empirical evidence. A priori justification makes reference to experience; but the issue concerns how one knows the proposition or claim in question You don't have to get up off your couch and go outside and examine the way things are in the physical world. You don't have to do any science.
