And empiricist reasons for being rationalist.

a)Do you accept this?
b)If you don't, explain.
c)If you do, does it render the concepts useless, and why/why not?

I hope for a stimulating discussion.

Wasn't the distinction made by Kant himself? It was always an incredibly stupid one to me, the rationalist uses experiment as much as the empiricist uses reason and both seem to respect the role of innate faculties.

I didn't know anything about Kant, I just thought of it.
Clearly there are cultural approaches that can be defined as one or the other on a practical level though, and an, appositely enough, empirical way of comparing the societal results from two cultures such as France and Britain which can broadly be described as falling into one of the two camps.
