Rigorous argument


As Kant pointed out, philosophy and mathematics are crucially different in that mathematics starts with definitions while philosophy ends with them (Critique of Pure Reason, B 741ff). Philosophy discusses alternative first principles and disputes definitions and modes of argument. It tries to find a rigorous--or probable, or persuasive--way of disclosing the conditions that make rigorous argument possible. (from Kolb, Socrates In the Labyrinth)
