Kripke's Contingent A Priori and Necessary A Posteriori

Philosophy Research Archives 11:481-489 (1985)
Abstract
We think that Kripke’s arguments that there are contingent a priori truths and that there are necessary a posteriori truths about named and essentially described entities fail. They fail for the reasons that there are ambiguities in each of the three eases. In the first ease, what is known apriori is not what is contingent. In the latter two cases, what is necessary or essential is not what is known a posteriori
