New facts strategies determine this outcome for extraordinarily huge periods of logics.

Example text

During the first International Conference on ON THE FORMATION OF LOGICAL EMPIRICISM 17 Scientific Philosophy held in Paris in 1935, he presented a paper on the problem of the a priori in which we find again his criticism of Kant, but where there is no mention of the constitutive principles and all assertions are seen as either synthetic assertions deriving from experience or analytical assertions (“Tout ce que nous savons du monde est tiré de 1’expérience, et les transformations des données empiriques son purement tautologiques, analytiques” l6).

Even so, the argumentation in favour of the necessity of a coordinative assumption of congruence and its linguistic-semantic value seem to indicate clearly enough that it was only by means of an implicit reference to the verification principle and the tautological nature of the a priori that it was possible to abandon the idea of the constitutive a priori, as formulated in his 1920 work on the theory of relativity. Whether this was a theoretically valid move or not, whether this involved the emergence of a tension with Einstein’s perspective and, finally, whether this in some ways concealed a vision of the relationship between theory and experience less defensible than Cassirer’s, is a completely different story21.
