The failure to recognize that logic is man’s method of cognition, has produced
a brood of artificial splits and dichotomies which represent restatements of
the analytic-synthetic dichotomy from various aspects. Three in particular are
prevalent today: logical truth vs. factual truth; the logically possible vs.
the empirically possible; and the a priori vs. the a posteriori.
Any theory that propounds an opposition between the logical and the empirical,
represents a failure to grasp the nature of logic and its role in human
cognition. Man’s knowledge is not acquired by logic apart from experience or
by experience apart from logic, but by the application of logic to
experience. All truths are the product of a logical identification of the
facts of experience.
