Penelope Maddy (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Penelope Maddy investigates the concept of the a priori in the context of contemporary scientific naturalism, arguing that a naturalistic account of the growth of scientific knowledge refutes the suggestion that there are a priori truths. Maddy notes the importance of Kant's conception of the a priori to her naturalism, and works out the differences and similarities between Quine's and her (Quinean) naturalism.

Keywords:   a priori, Kant, naturalism, Penelope Maddy, Quine, scientific knowledge, scientific naturalism
