Amphiboly

Amphiboly. The ambiguity of a proposition, as distinguished from homonymia, the ambiguity of a term.

Examples:

(a) Aio te Æacida Romanos vincere posse.

(b) The Duke yet lives that Henry shall depose.

 

The Latin language is peculiarly exposed to amphiboly from the absence of articles, and the various admissible arrangement of words, in conjunction with the constant use of the infinitive at once governed by and governing an accusative. Kant employs the term in a sense of his own, as he has done in the case of other philosophical words. He denotes by it a confusion of the notions of the pure understanding with the perceptions of experience, and a consequent ascription to the latter of what belongs only to the former.
