An analytic or necessary truth (‘sentence’ in linguistics) is true by virtue of its meaning: ‘All bachelors are unmarried men’. A synthetic or contingent truth is true by virtue of empirical fact: ‘Grass is green.   Anderson then recounts the long, arduous path in the s and s that finally brought Kant to the canonical formulation of the analytic/synthetic distinction in the first Critique (part II).

    The distinction between analytic and synthetic truths has played a major role in the history of philosophy, but it was challenged by Quine and others in the 20th century, and the distinction's. On the other hand, Wittgenstein's later critique of analysis in the early (logical atomist) period of analytic philosophy, and Quine's attack on the analytic-synthetic distinction, for example, have led some to claim that we are now in a ‘post-analytic’ age. Such criticisms, however, are only directed at particular conceptions of analysis.
