a posteriori and a priori[edit]

I am not sure I understand why a posteriori points here and a priori points to A priori and a posteriori. Shouldn't they both point to A priori and a posteriori? speednat (talk) 03:45, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

I have read a large deal on this subject and there are distinct differences between the two terms. This is why they are stated as such. They are in the same article because of their creator(s). To explain these differences and there origins is too lengthy and the article itself illustrates their meaning to a large extent very well.

Other languages[edit]

Some translations are absolutely wrong, because there is a difference between science which is based on pure experimentation (=empirical science) and science based on other methods. See also the old wrong description of Experimental physics. --Fmrauch (talk) 22:09, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Which translations are you referring to?
