Hartry Field argues that meaning‐based approaches to explaining the apriority of certain propositions fail to succeed in their endeavour. He suggests that adopting what one calls a ‘non‐factualist’ view of justification itself removes the mystery of the apriority of such propositions, and sketches what such a view of justification involves.

Keywords: apriority; Hartry Field; justification; non‐factualism
