A counterexample to that schema would be a case involving some F that was simultaneously non-F, which is a flat-out contradiction and thus impossible. Because they are not made true by any metaphysical facts about the world, logically necessary truths aren’t metaphysically necessary. Nor are they conceptually necessary, since they are not made true by any facts about the (nonlogical) concepts we use to think about the world. They are necessarily true simply by virtue of their logical form. The a Priori/a Posteriori Distinction The a priori/a posteriori distinction is an epistemological distinction: it characterizes the way a proposition is known or the way a person is justified in believing the proposition.

Hence, anything that has the same chemical nature as water must of necessity be identical to water. However, we can’t deduce anything about the actual particular nature of water from the concept of its being a chemical substance or from the concept of its having an empirical nature that is essential to water. We have to do some empirical investigation instead. Only when our best scientific theories have confirmed that the chemical nature of water is H2O can we then be justified in believing that water is H2O.
