'A priori' - the significance and meaning of the word

Many people today have a habit to use in speech huge number of words of foreign origin.For example, using the word "a priori", its value is not understood by many.In a clarification concerning this word is found, "the statement made previously to gain experience."And exhibited an example: "A friend just crazy about horse racing.Tomorrow, the decisive race.A priori, it is on the racetrack! "Is it appropriate in this case the use of the word?Debatable.

In fact, as the blogger expressed above, the word indicates that the conclusion is not based on experience.And in this case we see that the assumption is just based on the fact that as a result of the experience (one always goes to the races, he has not missed any important race) Comrade making certain conclusions.Therefore, in this context, "a priori" the value can be only with a touch of humor or mild derision.Thus, a person trying to explain the meaning of the expression, contradicts himself.

Another statement is based on the fact that "a priori" significance of the original knowledge that do not require evidence.An example of the spherical shape of the Earth.The very definition of the word can be called the best, but with the example of a flash in the pan again.

How many centuries people believed the earth was flat, it was really almost a priori for all.But there was one by the name of Copernicus, for whom the view of nothing.And proved that the Earth is round.Here you have a priori ...

Or even about parallel lines.Previously, you could say, a priori, that they do not cross!And today it is unlikely anyone will argue that the intersection of parallel lines is not possible.

The modern world is changing at a tremendous speed precisely because of those people for whom there are no words "a priori".The value of the experience for them - everything.They fry cook cucumbers and garlic ice cream, trying to compose his body in such a way to make it fit in a meter cube climb the cliffs and down into the depths of the oceans.

And the other part of the population a priori argues that this is impossible.Without checking without making experiments, just because so many people think, says a priori.What this means is we have already found.But what part of speech the word may be in the sentence?

Most often this word is an adverb meaning.It seems to replace the word "advance", "speculative", "original" or expressions are circumstances, such as "self-evident", "without the support of the facts."Less common in the Russian language it acts as an adverb substantivized ie indeclinable neuter noun.

priori knowledge today - it is deeply subjective.If earlier, almost 50 years ago, there were certain dogmas, axioms, which do not need to prove and should blindly accept on faith, but today all of this does not exist.If students in the last century would have asked: "Are there ghosts?", The majority would have said half a priori: "Of course not!And no sorcery, and God, and transformations! "And even today, scientists find it difficult to give a definite and positive answer to this question.What a loss!There are research institutes that study is that in the past did not exist a priori, and therefore did not require investigation.

laughed at "zagovorёnnoy" Grandma-quack water, a priori, arguing that all this is - deceit.Today, scientists have frozen the different types of water (and zagovorёnnuyu included) and made an analysis of their structures.Amazing!Facts destroyed a priori approval.Water zagovorёnnaya has a regular hexagonal structure of snowflakes, the same which has a spring.But the water from the tap has a broken structure.

So today is ridiculous to claim that a priori.Progress does not believe anyone on the word, he's "trying on a tooth."Destroys dogma, crumples axioms, sets its own rules.But the word "a priori" in the speech of some more there, a beautiful foreign word.
