Analytic/Synthetic Distinction[edit]

DanLanglois (talk) 09:10, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I added some comments to the talk page here:

I listed some of my perspective on this distinction, and some suggestions for improving the article. I think, upon reflection, that my criticisms of the section on Kant, in particular, for not closely hewing to the Kantian line, might be kind of bracing, considering that we are all volunteers, I don't know maybe you wrote this originally I haven't checked that..but (w/apologies to whom etc.) I do wonder about making some changes/improvements. Are you interested in discussing such an idea? I wouldn't make any changes on my own, as I'm inexperienced w/Wiki contributions.
