Kant – Introduction Part III-VI -a priori synthetic judgment central to his critique -establishes that these judgments are in fact possible -make limits of metaphysics clear, set them -seems to think that metaphysics didn’t exist before him -because no one grounded it in pure science -rather in ungrounded assumptions/justifications -laying foundation for metaphysical science -analytic judgments -already know it in a way, even if you have not said it -already have idea of unmarried before idea of bachelor is articulated -know an aunt is a woman, etc. -this is a process of analysis, unmarried is contained in bachelor, A contained in B -don’t learn anything new when you analyze a concept -no content added -elucidating the content that is already there (elucidatory) -why are they called judgments? (not just true statements) -form of subject and predicate statement -“bachelors are unmarried” -saying something about bachelors that has a truth value -synthetic judgments -A is not contained in B -“grass is green”
