what is truth
problems with analytic truth
Human reason is by nature architectonic. That is to say, it regards all knowledge as parts of a possible system, and hence accepts only such principles as at least do not incapacitate a knowledge to which we may have attained from being placed along with others in a general system. But the propositions of the antithesis are of a character which renders the completion of an edifice of knowledge impossible. According to these [propositions], beyond one state of the world there is always to be found one more ancient; in every part always other parts themselves divisible; preceding every event another, the origin of which must itself be sought still higher; and everything in existence is conditioned, and still not dependent on an unconditioned and primal existence.
