The aim of the present paper is to contribute to the discussion on the constitutive a priori in science by linking it with the discussion on scientific laws and theories, in such a way to show how the different senses of the notion of constitutive a priori are not incompatible to each other and that they can be precised in a unified, though differentiated, manner.
Keywords constitutive a priori  scientific laws  scientific theories  metatheoretical structuralism  fundamental law  classical genetics
