Peter Railton (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Peter Railton explores a non‐meaning‐based approach to explaining the possibility of a priori knowledge, suggesting that we regard apparently a priori principles as rules, regulative of certain practices. Railton goes on to use this idea as a foundation of comparison with Wittgenstein's views in the first part of his Philosophical Investigations.
