  • Two types of knowledge
    • Relations of ideas
      • A proposition expresses a relation of ideas if its denial is impossible (self-contradictory)
        • Have to be true
        • Necessary truths
      • Verified through deductive reasoning
      • E.g. All bachelors are male, geometry, algebra
    • Matters of fact
      • A proposition expresses a matter of fact if both it and its denial are possible (not self-contradictory)
      • Verified through experience
      • E.g. The Sun will rise tomorrow
