Analyticity/Syntheticity Me I 27
analytical / Kant/ Menne: analytical judgment: so narrow that most of the mathematics and logic already falls in the area of synthetic judgment.
Sai IV 271
analytic / synthetic: error: There are invalid arguments whose premises are analytical, but their conclusion is synthetic.
E.g. "Whatever will be, will be." The wrong conclusion is drawn that the future is preordained! (> Determinism)
E.g. "business is business" - From this the synthetic judgment is concluded that business was not moral.
