Kant's theory of geometrical reasoning and the analytic-synthetic distinction. On Hintikka's interpretation of Kant's philosophy of mathematics

Abstract
Kant's distinction between analytic and synthetic method is connected to the so-called Aristotelian model of science and has to be interpreted in a (broad) directional sense. With the distinction between analytic and synthetic judgments the critical Kant did introduced a new way of using the terms 'analytic'-'synthetic', but one that still lies in line with their directional sense. A careful comparison of the conceptions of the critical Kant with ideas of the precritical Kant as expressed in _Ãœber die Deutlichkeit, leads to the interpretation defended here of Kant's distinction between analytic and synthetic judgments within his philosophy of mathematics
