The terms a priori ("from the earlier") and a posteriori ("from the later") are used in philosophy (epistemology) to distinguish two types of knowledge, arguments:

A priori knowledge or justification is independent of experience (for example "All bachelors are unmarried"). Galen Strawson has stated that an a priori argument is one in which "you can see that it is true just lying on your couch. You don't have to get up off your couch and go outside and examine the way things are in the physical world. You don't have to do any science.";

A posteriori knowledge or justification is dependent on experience or empirical evidence (for example "Some bachelors are very unhappy").

priòras [lot. prior — pirmas, vyresnysis]:
1. ist. V. Europoje (ypač Italijoje) vid. amžiais — renkamasis pirklių arba amatininkų gildijos vadovas;
2. katalikų vyrų vienuolyno vyresnysis;
3. katalikų vienuolių riterių ordino pareigūnas, rangu žemesnis už didįjį magistrą.

A Prior (or Prioress for nuns) is a monastic superior, usually lower in rank than an Abbot or Abbess.

A Prior Provincial is head of an area of certain Orders, notably the Dominicans, who are not cenobitic (monks) but mendicant friars.


Frajeris - Lochas.; Gerai apsirenges zmogus, gerai atrodantis, kuri norima apiplesti/apvogti/apgauti.

Among Dominicans, a convent, male or female, may be headed by a conventual prior, the province by a prior provincial, but the head of the whole Order is not called prior general, but Master General.
