Meaning postulates/Erlanger school/Lorenzen/Sauer: Kant himself points rather to Carnap and the doctrine of the predicator rules (Lorenzen):
The definition of a concept is not a necessary condition for this concept to be the subject concept of an analytical judgment. The normal case according to Kant is, rather, that we first begin with analytical judgments as partial conceptual explications...
...and by means of their definition "try to come close" to the concepts._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number. The corresponding books are indicated on the right hand side. ((s)…): Comment by the sender of the contribution.
