InQuine published the article “Two Dogmas of Empiricism,” in which he disputed the distinction made between analytic and synthetic statements. On the other hand, two sentences have the same intension if they are logically equivalent, i.

Embedded in this essay is the article by V. This article is also available for rental through DeepDyve. Der Raum deals with the philosophy of space.

Intuitive space is synthetic a priori, and mwtaphysics known via a priori intuition. In fact, John can believe that a sentence is true, but he can believe that a logically equivalent sentence is false. Wojcicki and Przelecki’s research is independent of the distinction between observational and theoretical terms, i. Rules of Inference and the Meaning of the Logical Constants.


In the American philosopher Saul Kripke was able to prove that a full semantics of modalities can be attained by means of possible-worlds semantics. Carnap admits, however, that the distinction is not always clear and the line of demarcation often arbitrary. He then moved to Berlin and studied the theory of relativity.

InCarnap published The Logical Structure of the Worldin which he developed a formal version of empiricism arguing that all scientific terms are definable by means of a phenomenalistic language. The latter sets out Carnap’s definitive view on the analytic-synthetic distinction.

The impossibility of p means that p is logically false. A is called “extensional with respect to p” if and only if the truth value of A does not change if we substitute the sentence p with an equivalent sentence q.

He asserted that space relations are based on the causal propagation of a signal, while the causal propagation itself is based on the time order. In this way inductive logic would answer the problem raised by David Hume’s analysis of induction.

Formal space is analytic a priori; it is concerned with the formal properties of the space that is with those properties which are a logical consequence of a definite set of axioms.

It is possible that the sentences “John believes that A” and “John believes that B” are false. They proved that the Carnap sentence is the weakest meaning postulate, i. It can explain and forecast facts and carnnap thought of as an inductive generalization of such factual observations. Intuitive space, with its synthetic a priori character, is a concession to Kantian philosophy. In the s, stimulated by Tarskian model theory, Carnap became carna; in semantics.

According to Carnap, there is another kind of scientific explanation, probabilistic explanation, in which at least one universal law is not a deterministic law, but a probabilistic law.
