Analytical/Hare: is the statement: "propositions of the form" p and not-p" are analytically false" supposed to be analytically true? - Or empirically? - It’s about the (empirical) use of "and not". - Plato/Solution: Anamnesis: the definition of a concept is similar to remembering - i.e. not to make an empirical discovery or to decide. - Plato: right is only what we have learned from our teachers.
