The beginning:
Are All Plausible A Priori Justifiable Claims Analytic in Salmon's Sense?
According to Salmon, a proposition is analytic if the predicate concept of the proposition is contained within the subject concept (BonJour & Baker, 2008). In other words, it depends on whether the predicate and subject of the sentence can be related in a semantic way. To assume that all plausible a prior claims were analytic could mean that there is an inherent meaning in words which is understood by every single person when they read that sentence. Looking at the concept of communication and language from a social constructivist perspective, however, one can analyze how changes in beliefs about what is meant by certain words and methods of communication have...
The end:
.....kages between similar causes and similar effects. Belief is therefore also highly dependent on causal connections, which are the underlying processes that formulate our ability to ascribe an idea of belief to an experience, sentence or statement of value. What we perceive as belief is merely an ability to make synaptic connections between one experience and another. Without the addition of external causalities, belief in red or green would not occur. It is necessary, therefore to understand the juxtaposition of belief between the delivery of external causes, and an innate, possibly psychological connection between idea, influence, value and understanding.Reference
