Please could someone explain to me moral statements?
A posteori (if that's the correct spelling)
What do they mean?
How do they fit together?
How do they fit into Kantian Ethics?
Thank you soooo much to anyone who can help!

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.
I'm going to quote in Puddles the Monkey now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed.

A priori - can be known without human experience/knowledge that can be gained without human experience.
A posteriori - Knowledge gained by logical deductions made by observation and the experience of the material world.
Analytic - a statement that only requires the words within it to verify whether it is true or false.
Synthetic - A statement that requires external information, usually empirical evidence to verify whether it is true or false.
Sorry I'm not much help as I can only tell you the definitions, but Kant's theory is A priori if that helps?
