And it is something provided by the empirical concept of evidence, but not the apriori one. An empiricist, then, need not be at all moved by the a priorist 's first reason for thinking an apriori concept of evidence is superior to an empirical one. The empiricist will simply deny that the most important reason for seeking evidence is to obtain person-relativejustification. Rather it is to obtain personindependent reasons for believing. This, an empiricist can claim, is more in keeping with the objective thesis about evidence which both the a priorist and the empiricist espouse.

Gen. 29,247 (1996) 6 Methodology 21 PETER ACHINSTEIN THE EMPIRICAL CHARACTER OF EVIDENCE 1 We philosophers of science have long debated the issue of what counts as evidence for a scientific theory or hypothesis. Today there is as much disagreement as ever. We argue about whether evidence or confirmation should be understood by reference to probability, whether it is quantitative, whether it is inductive, hypothetico-deductive, or neither, whether predictions of new phenomena provide stronger evidence than explanations of old one, whether there are universal standards of evidence or whether such standards vary from one person or community to the next, and even over whether scientists believe hypotheses on the basis of evidence or solely because of interactions with peers.

This objective, person-independent concept of good reason for belief is, according to the empiricist, what we most fundamentally want when we seek evidence. And it is something provided by the empirical concept of evidence, but not the apriori one. An empiricist, then, need not be at all moved by the a priorist 's first reason for thinking an apriori concept of evidence is superior to an empirical one. The empiricist will simply deny that the most important reason for seeking evidence is to obtain person-relativejustification.
