Immanuel Kant’s greatest achievement in the philosophy world came in the 18th century. He was able work out a compromise that brought these two sides on this issue together on a common reasoning panel (Cahn, 2003). According to Kant’s view of epistemology, human beings have in their possession knowledge which they have gained prior to experience.
In addition to this, this knowledge does not lack a cognitive significance. Thus, for Immanuel Kant, the distinctions or differences that exists between the analytic and the synthetic, and those that exist between the priori and a posterior need to be kept apart. Kant explains his view stating that there are times when some of these judgements can be regarded as being synthetic as well as priori at the same time (Cahn, 2003).
