A priori or a posteriori?
In the following paper, I will argue that a posteriori provides a better platform for knowledge. Three main points will be presented throughout this paper to provide evidence that lead to that conclusion. First, experience helps people justify their knowledge more accurate. Second, people will have better reactions to daily situations because the knowledge that they have are based on experiences. Third, knowledge from experiences is more professional and reliable because it was derived from observations and experiments.
First of all, a posteriori help people to adjust their knowledge. Anything comes from experiences will be more accurate than the knowledge that doesn’t. Through experiences, people can make sure what they believe in is right. For example, you know that the life of poor people is very difficult. That is the knowledge you got from the education throughout your school career. But you will never know exactly what difficulties they have to deal with everyday or what the government does to help them, etc unless you experience that through the community service or through the plunges at school, etc. Experiences can give you more accuracy about the knowledge that you have by providing further evidences.
Second, people will know more how to react better to the situations if they have a knowledge that comes from experiences. Knowing how to react to situations is very important in daily life. To have an appropriate reaction, one needs to experience it once or twice. For example, every dorm has fire drill once in a while to give students the ideas what to do if there is a real fire going on. Even though it is not a fun activity to do but it is helpful. Students experience through practicing and have the knowledge of what to do if they are in that situation later. You learn how to react to things around you through experiencing them or even through others’. One cannot know how to ride a bus if he/she haven’t experience it before or...
