The prominence of the a priori within traditional epistemology is largely due to the influence of Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason (), where he introduces a conceptual framework that involves three distinctions: the epistemic distinction between a priori and empirical (or a posteriori) knowledge; the metaphysical distinction between necessary and contingent.

      John Greco is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Fordham University. His essays on epistemology, moral theory, and philosophy of religion have appeared in such journals as American Philosophical Quarterly, American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly, Canadian Journal of Philosophy, Metaphilosophy, and Philosophy and Phenomenological Research. Philosophers from Plato to Descartes, Kant to Kripke, all endorse the a priori and engage in a priori reasoning in their philosophical discussions. Recent work in epistemology and experimental philosophy, however, has raised questions about both the existence of a priori knowledge and the centrality of the a priori for philosophy.

      A priori / a posteriori and analytic / synthetic Kant distinguishes between two closely related concepts: the epistemological (knowledge-related) a priori/a posteriori distinction and the semantic (truth-related) analytic/synthetic distinction.

The seminar will explore the phenomenon of a priori knowledge. We'll consider some notable attempts to account for a priori knowledge in the history of philosophy (e.g., by Plato, Descartes, Hume, and Kant), some influential critiques of the notion; we will end by considering some contemporary approaches to the a .The major divide in contemporary epistemology is between those who embrace and those who reject a priori knowledge.

Assessing the status of the a priori within contemporary epistemology requires distinguishing.The notion of a priori knowledge, construed as a notion of non-empirically grounded knowledge, is not the same as a notion of epistemic certainty.

Philosophers have understood ‘epistemic certainty’ in various ways: for instance, as epistemically indubitable belief or as self-evident belief.
