Why isn't every true proposition of the form 'Xp' tautological/analytic?
If I say 'All Chairs are red', and this is true, then the proposition means '(that which is red) is red', which is a tautology. This can be said of any similar proposition. If we look at 'All bachelors are single males' (an accepted analytic statement), how is this logically different to 'All chairs are red', to mark one as 'analytic' and one as 'synthetic'?
