a posteriori (comparative more a posteriori, superlative most a posteriori)

  1. (logic) In a manner that deduces theories from facts.
    • 1991, New Scientist
      FALLACIES of the modern worldview have to do with the conception of the world as substance or machinery, mistaking abstractions for reality, confusing origins and truth, failing to attribute feeling to things that feel, recognising ethics as exclusively anthropocentric, thinking a posteriori, objectifying facts as separated from values, reducing the complex to the simple and dividing knowledge into distinct disciplines that produce experts who are often wrong.
