  1. For Kant, the classical examples of a priori knowledge are, first of all, the ideas of space and time, as well as logical categories (quantity, quality, cause, effect, possibility, impossibility, etc.). The former are the condition of our perception, the latter – thinking.

  2. According to Kant, a priori synthetic judgments are those that a person invents to explain any phenomena. These are the conditions under which, in our opinion, these phenomena can exist. An example of a priori knowledge and knowledge is all the provisions of mathematics, those knowledge that include philosophical categories: cause, substance, etc. There are many a priori knowledge, knowledge, problems that are extremely important for human life. “These unavoidable problems of the purest reason are God, freedom, and immortality.” The science that seeks to solve such problems is metaphysics, and for it the problem of a priori knowledge is very important. Kant makes the following conclusion:”Philosophy requires a science that determines the possibility, principles, and scope of all a priori knowledge.”
    In my opinion, folk signs can be attributed to a priori knowledge, we don't know who invented them, whether they really exist, whether they come true, but we believe in them and not based on our own experience, and we don't know if anyone has had this experience at all.
