In his article ‘Two Dogmas of Empiricism’, Professor Quine advances a number of criticisms of the supposed distinction between analytic and synthetic statements, and of other associated notions. It is, he says, a distinction which he rejects. This chapter shows that his criticisms of the distinction do not justify his rejection of it.

Keywords: Quine; Two Dogmas of Empiricism; analytic statements; synthetic statements; distinction
