AB - This paper proposes a non-trivial definition of the notion of analytic method. Working within the so-called instructional model of method, I distinguish three kinds of instructions which occur in methods: *selective, executive*, and *declarative* instructions. I discuss the relation between each of these and the analyticity of a method. Then I define the notions of an *analytic use* of an instruction and of an *analytic instruction*, which are at the basis of the proposed definition of an analytic method. Finally, I discuss the issue of circularity in the presented model which arises if we consider a finite agent testing a method for analyticity.
