An A Priori argument is one that does not rely on evidence but rather on logic and reasoning. This means that an A Priori argument can never be proved wrong (as no evidence can be produced against it) but simultaneously it can never be proved right.

A Priori arguments are generally considered weaker than A Posteriori arguments.
