Evolutionary Theory of Knowledge and the Apriori Grounds of Knowledge

(Original title: Evolučná teória poznania a problém apriórnych základov poznania)
Filozofia, 50 (1995), 7, 353-360.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The aim of the paper is to show the way of resolving the problem of apriori in so called evolutionary epistemology, especially in its „scientific“ version. The author focuses his attention upon the distinction between Kant's concept of apriori and that of evolutionary epistemology, and comes to the conclusion that despite its putting in a claim to having solved and overcome Kant's problems of apriori and transcendental idealism as problems of contemporary evolutionary biology, the evolutionary epistemology rather solves, under the same label, another problems.
