Bob Hale and Crispin Wright hold a meaning‐based approach to the explanation of a priori propositions. In their contribution, they develop the model of implicit definition, also suggested by Boghossian in this collection, and in particular, investigate its explanatory potential with regard to some cases of a priori knowledge.
