allgemeingültig meaning in Philosophy Dictionary

(Ger. allgemein + gelten, universally legitimate) A proposition or wisdom which can be universally good, or essential. These types of propositions could be either empirical, in other words., dependent upon experience, or a priori, i.e., independent of experience. In Kant's theoretical philosophy the required kinds of the sensibility and comprehension tend to be announced to own universal validity a priori, since they are the sine qua non, of any and all experience. -- O.F.K.
