The analytic-synthetic distinction, grounding, and the conceptual hierarchy in Bolzano. Ginammi, A. 0.
abstract   bibtex   
This paper links Bolzano's analytic-synthetic distinction to the conceptual hierarchy and the hierarchy of truths, i.e.\textasciitildethe relation of grounding. The aim of this paper is, by building on (Ginammi \textbackslash& Betti forthcoming), to prove in a systematic manner two claims made by de Jong (2001, 2010): first, that every analytic truth is grounded in a corresponding synthetic truth, and second, that a truth being analytic in Bolzano's sense amounts to sub-maximal generality of that truth. Correspondingly, it will be argued that the analytic-synthetic distinction served for Bolzano as a means to distinguish truths that are part of proper science from those that are not. \textbackslashhyp\p̌hantom\We will further interpret Bolzano's distinction between analyticity in the broad sense and logical analyticity, related to the conceptual hierarchy, in a new way: logical analyticity is about concept containment and thus composition relations, whereas analyticity in the broad sense is about subordination relations and thus about quantification.
