Frank Jackson investigates the theoretical commitments of certain stances about semantics as far as they shed light on the dispute between meaning‐based and non‐meaning‐based approaches to explaining apriority. Jackson argues generally that anyone who agrees that sentences have representational content and who is not a sceptic should accept that there are a priori truths that outrun the logical truths.

Keywords:   apriority, Frank Jackson, representation, representational content, scepticism, semantics
