Apodictic


core definition

An apodictic (or apodeictic) proposition is one that asserts that something is necessarily the case or that something is impossible.


explanatory context

Apodictic is a term initially associated with Aritotelian logic. It has also been used by Edmund Husserl in his analysis of transcendental phenomenology. Husserl argues that the essence of social phenomena are self-evident to the transcendental phenomenologist. Essences are known apodicticly through a process of bracketing away the superfluous clutter of the social world (a process known as époché).
