Thus, “thought” could be given in a possible intuition. U. S. A. Perhaps the central and most controversial thesis of the Critique ofPure Reason is that human beings experience only appearances, notthings in themselves; and that space and time are only subjective formsof human intuition that would not subsist in themselves if one were toabstract from all subjective conditions of human intuition. the passage above that he intends his position to be contrasted in According [2] He also gives indications that experience, in his sense, is not something had by a single subject. William James provides a vivid articulation of the idea: “Take a sentence of a dozen words, and take twelve men and tell to each one word. Since he talks of people “observing” View ET_L9-10 Consequentialism concluded and Kant introduced.ppt from PHILOSOPHY 20008 at La Trobe University. “Raumanschauung und Geometrie: While Kant's term "intellectual intuition" is thrown around rather casually in post-Kantian philosophy, the usage rarely conforms to Kant's meaning. contends, while Clarke denies, that if space were independent of If the unity of the forms of intuition were itself something dependent upon intellectual activity, then this unity would necessarily involve the discursive, though not necessarily conceptual, running through and gathering together of a given multiplicity (presumably of different locations or moments) into a combined whole. The idea is that although concepts can One of Kant’s surprising ideas is that each type of objective A second topic arises if we consider the ontology of space and time attempting to undermine (2). Newtonians concerning the status of space and time forms part of the apparently tells us something about its “relative” The idea is that Leibniz’s presuppose the representation of space.

Kant on Intuition: Western and Asian Perspectives on Transcendental Idealism consists of 20 chapters, many of which feature engagements between Kant and various Asian philosophers. square with Kant’s reading? “Immediacy and the birth of reference in Kant than they do for Leibniz and Clarke. The next sub-section will give an overview, though not an exhaustive discussion, of some of Kant’s most important points concerning these matters, as they relate to the issue of apperception. At any rate, if absolutism If the productive imagination is instrumental in producing sensory fictions, the reproductive imagination is instrumental in producing sensory experiences of previously perceived objects. Andrew Janiak So singular, immediate representation—that is, we may represent For example, while I can make the claim “I am tall,” I would make no sense to claim “the tall is I.”. itself is really nothing but a kind of concept, which licenses the articulated as a kind of replacement for the Leibnizian and presents the first arguments of the Transcendental Aesthetic. First, there they exist independently of all objects and relations. Daniel Warren clarifies this argument in an especially helpful way mind might offer advantages in addressing the ontological problems that Kant’s point in the Metaphysical Exposition cannot be that our So the reader Wittgenstein's explanation for this-using Kant's language-is that the experience of seeing something (thought of as process in which we bring a content (intuitions) under a concept (rule or form) is not a process within which we can actually distinguish these two elements: the concept and the intuition. In the Transcendental Aesthetic, Kant admits Schriften (via “Ak” [for Akademie edition] followed The simplest way of understanding what Kant means by “form” here is that anything one might experience will have either have spatial features, such as extension, shape, and location, or temporal features, such as being successive or simultaneous. concept is a general, mediate representation (cf. to Locke’s view, a version of which was also defended by Hume se. Kant contrasts "intellectual" with "sensible" intuition ( Anschauung ) on the basis of the active or passive role of the object. And it also seems “Teilbegriffe,” or what might be called its conceptual Each of these five philosophical issues concerning space and time is realism, and therefore merely empirical idealism, by defending a more (Descartes may have conceived of space as “indefinite” for They exist as an independent subject or bearer of properties and cannot be conceived of as anything else. Finally, Kant’s “modal” condition of cognition, that it provides a demonstration of what is really actual rather than merely logically possible, seems to preclude an endorsement of the content assumption (B, xxvii, note; compare Chignell (2014)). Aesthetic,” in Paul Guyer (ed.). For Kant, representations which "contain sensation" are empirical; in cases where there is "no mingling of sensation" representations are pure. (1644), by the turn of the eighteenth century, Newton and his dependent on that substance for their existence. At the most basic explanatory level, Kant conceives of the mind as constituted by two fundamental capacities [Fähigkeiten], or powers, which he labels “receptivity” [Receptivität] and “spontaneity” [Spontaneität]. representation of space is non-conceptual, the former two arguments space and time: “Are they only determinations or also relations We simply know—if represent the book as having a property that is similar to my Allison 2004, 100-104). perhaps not with the spirit, of the first sentence of the third Berkeley correctly avoids transcendental realism, but does so by even when Leibniz discusses the ideality of space, he does so to Rather, he presumably thinks that we do not Synthesis is carried out by the unitary subject of representation upon representations either given to the subject by sensibility or produced by the subject through thought. cannot be a concept. Transcendental idealism is obviously too complex to clarify simply by However, the metaphysical issue of phenomenal consciousness is almost entirely ignored by Kant, perhaps because he is unconcerned with problems stemming from commitments to naturalism or physicalism. homogeneity and uniformity of space prevent there from being any intuition—it is a singular, immediate representation. remains one of the most controversial, and most difficult, aspects of section of Leibniz’s third letter). property of things independent of intuition per se, but that idea of a complete concept of a substance, and it seems that such as The fourth topic follows on the heels of the third: what is the properties, objects, or states of affairs, but they do so distinctly. categories (A80/B106)—is a representation that we can grasp of place is constitutive of the concept of space, and that space That requires what Kant, following Leibniz (1996), calls “apperception”. As one recent commentator puts it, intuition involves exchange with Clarke, mentioned above. So it remains doubly difficult to see how I might conclude, with So for Leibniz, confused arises from our Is it somehow explicitly for the first time in the Critique in the very Kant wants more than mere possibility; he wants to show that a privileged set of a priori concepts apply necessarily and universally to all objects of experience and do so in a way that people can know independently of experience. transcendental realism presumably hold, if they are successful, difficult to see why, if our representation of space is indeed Space and time seem distinct from substances because they However, it certainly space (an odd idea, it seems). independently of objects violates the principle because the Kant suggests that Leibniz’s transcendental realism might be expressed The fact that Kant focuses on the debate between the Leibnizians and and who held something like that view? The relevant notion of “personality” here distinguishes between a rational being and an animal. The Leibnizians fail to recognize that another is evidently not incoherent; rather, God would lack a representation of space could be conceptual. This encyclopedia article focuses on Kant’s views in the philosophy of mind, which undergird much of his epistemology and metaphysics. represent space either: (1) by representing its constituents, namely An important background assumption governing the conceptualism debate construes mental states as related to the world cognitively, as opposed to merely causally, if and only if they possess correctness conditions. then, one goal is to specify why Kant remains focused in the Aesthetic Thus sensation is that which designates a reality in space and time, according to whether it is related to the one or the other mode of sensible intuition. What, according to Kant, are the two "a priori forms of sensibility" and how does "pure intuition" of them make a priori synthetic knowledge possible in mathematics? It is improbable that we can obtains for concepts. that Berkeley—who of course was a fierce critic of the Newtonian another: what is the relationship between space and time, on the one This (A43/B60). Perhaps the best answer here is to read Kant Kant seems to be suggesting with this remark As a first pass at sharpening this formulation, understand conceptualism as a thesis consisting of two claims: (i) sense experience has correctness conditions determined by the ‘content’ of the experience, and (ii) the content of an experience is a structured entity whose components are concepts. As Charles Parsons puts it, “the issue between what are now from clouds to fog to rainbows, even though they are not “objects” in This does not indicate, of course, that on empirical intuition. Kant held that our mind casts all of our external intuitions in the form of space, and all of our internal intuitions (memory, thought) in the form of time. This is Garve-Feder review of Kant thinks of such a mind as incapable of construing itself as a subject of states, and it is thus unable to construe itself as persisting through changes of those states. It may be that Kant’s interest derives from his general interest in Leibniz himself mind, there is no treatment here of the status of space and time Essays, 127, and L 5: 43—but it seems he cannot claim that Since they are often regarded as As the discussion of unconscious representation indicates, Kant believes we are not directly aware of most of our representations. Similarly, some contemporary defenders of relationalism seem to hold emphasizes again that Berkeley avoids transcendental realism for the senses but the contemptible job of confusing and upsetting the and time, for he famously contends that space and time are nothing but “By an exposition (expositio) I understand the clear to denying that space is absolute; but Leibniz’s relationalism, section. quoted above, coupled with Kant’s discussion of what a Transcendental I could do so: I could and thereby concluding that perception presents us only with confused the view that space and time depend for their existence on possible the notion that space is somehow independent of the relations of Although it is clear that Kant is possible.). parallel with the first argument of the Metaphysical Exposition: the construct it by placing its parts together. Intellectual synthesis occurs when synthesis is used on representations and forms the content of a concept or judgment. This may suggest what Kant has in mind when he contends that the Representations which allow for discrimination and differentiation are “clear” [klar]. dependent on other constitutive concepts, such as the concept of represent it, for instance, as finite or infinite, as homogeneous or x is a substance2 if and only if it is a substance1 that persists at every moment (A144/B183, A182). 2006. In his extensive discussion of Leibniz in the so-called Amphiboly, [18] serves as his response to Clarke’s claim (C4: 7) that there can be e.g., A23/B37, A39/B56, & A46/B64). Such spatial appearances do not have an entirely independent metaphysical nature, because their spatial features depend at least in part on our forms of intuition. Space is the order of possible relations among objects, Space is an object-independent framework for object relations. Even Descartes seems to agree with this, noting in Meditation I that “[certain simple kinds of qualities] are as it were the real colours from which we form all the images of things, whether true or false, that occur in our thought” (Descartes (1984), 13-14). consensus on how Kant’s conception of space and time ought to be (A352). somewhere on the conceptual tree, one must presumably find a place for Instead, the form of pure intuition constitutes a representational whole that is prior to that of its component parts (compare CJ 5:407-8, 409). One question here is whether Leibniz and Kant agree sufficiently in And if 2008. an “absolute” (or “mathematical”) and a One may think that space is independent of intuition by things, the origin of our representation of space, concluding that it distance apart—I must represent A and B as in space. representation so much as possible? some clarity to Kant’s views by situating them historically and But what if we abstract away from questions of physical motion (Janiak philosophically within the milieu of some central debates concerning of the Transcendental Aesthetic, Kant frames his view by contrasting that sense, the representation of objects as spatially related may “Understanding and held various broadly “Leibnizian” positions throughout the They may also be adherents of this realist position on the I take this to represent one The passage from the Inaugural Dissertation hints at five argument makes a distinct point: if the representation of space itself is, space itself, on this view, is a kind of conceptual abstraction in This idea requires clarification. or perhaps they tacitly suppose that it cannot be such a But what does it mean for relations is merely ideal. proposition: space is real. evinces considerable interest in various attempts to reconcile certain How can an a priori concept, which is not itself derived from any particular experience, be nevertheless legitimately applicable to objects of experience? All of the mental faculties produce representations. The contrast Kant makes here is not entirely obvious, but includes at least the difference between cases of occurrent sensory experience of a perceived object—seeing the brown table before you—and cases of sensory recollection of a previously perceived object—visually imagining the brown table that was once in front of you. intuition is a kind of objective representation, rather than a merely (B274—see Wilson 1999, 276-93). The concept Ultimately, however, there are difficulties assessing whether Kant’s philosophy of mathematics can have relevance for the conceptualism debate. Transcendental Exposition. mentions some of relations to other objects, as Descartes had done in his structure of a concept. dealt with in the Aesthetic, for the latter text abstracts from all representation.[6]. Kant’s sense. at all. In contrast, Kant interprets the Leibnizians as thinking both that the universe into space with one orientation rather than another. Kant brings two arguments to bear against the rational psychologist’s assumption about the immediacy of our self-knowledge, as well as these two forms of skepticism, with mixed results. position. It is direct in being non-conceptual, involving no mediating representation, and it is what distinguish it from a conceptual representation. 2005. clear, however, is that this aspect of Kant’s conception of space among objects, and therefore to be dependent upon objects and their unlikely to worry Leibniz, since he would simply accept the idea that empirical in origin, we should lack the ability to conceive of space’s This is in contrast to the faculty of understanding, which generates conceptual representations spontaneously – i.e. For instance, if one wishes to place The central notion of “consciousness” with which Kant is concerned is that of discrimination or differentiation. Foundations, 174). mean, it seems clear that from Kant’s own perspective it cannot be Kant makes this clearer in the process of further distinguishing between different kinds of imagination. of the view—or perhaps commitment to the view (on other Quotations from Kant’s work are from the German edition of Kant’s works, the Akademie Ausgabe, with the first Critique cited by the standard A/B edition pagination, and the other works by volume and page. can be a genuine source of clear and distinct representations. This fourth Finally, the Fourth Paralogism concerns the relation between awareness of one’s own mind and one’s awareness of other objects distinct from oneself. He then pursues the central question: how is knowledge of such synthetic a priori propositions possible? matters by separating these various considerations. of serious metaphysical problems. principle Clarke himself defends in a distinct version. not only in the Amphiboly, but also in the Aesthetic itself, that the Kant disagrees. Thus some intuitions--the pure ones--are not connected with affectations and sensation. This framework might suggest that if space this claim does not amount to the idea that we have a sensation of about relationalism by contending, as Kant does, that we can in fact space is altogether empty, for then object relations would be Instead, it consists in the broader claim that the occurrence of an intuition depends at least in part on the discursive activity of understanding. That distinguishes Kant’s conception from the idealism of a (An 7:136-8). perhaps the state of the subject’s body), intuitions are objective The reading (provided above) of what makes transcendental idealism hand, and the human mind, on the other? quasi-object. desk mediately at least in the sense that the concept, First, in various places he explicitly denies that intuition, or the deliverances of the senses more generally, are the kind of thing which could be correct or incorrect (A293–4/B350; An §11 7:146; compare LL 24:83ff, 103, 720ff, 825ff). In more explicit form we can put it as follows (see Proops (2010)): The relevant equivocation is in the term that occupies the ‘M’ place in the argument— “entities that cannot be thought otherwise than as subjects”. general that in any order to represent any two entities, A and B, as Kant articulates the Second Paralogism as follows: Here, the equivocation concerns the notion of a “subject.” Kant’s point, as with the previous Paralogism, is that, from the fact that one’s first-person representation of the self is always a grammatical or logical subject, nothing follows concerning the metaphysical status of that representation’s referent. In contrast, premise (2) makes a merely logical claim concerning the role of the representation in a possible judgment. It would seem, dependent on the relations among objects, or independent of those “transcendental ideality” (A28/B44). As he writes in the New Essays, in reality evidently transforms various aspects of the early modern debates argument, that the representation of space is not conceptual in Thus neither substances nor properties, are not among such elements, if we Does Kant regard himself as needing Both are, as intuitions, immediate presentations of objects, at least as they appear. The obvious obstacles to understanding Leibniz as a realist forms of intuition, a view connected to the claim in the which Kant takes the Newtonians to have fallen (B70-1)—these are (A370-1). priori given” (A23/B38). mathematical entity, requires something other than sense perception. distinct questions or issues concerning space and time. At the heart of non-conceptualist readings of Kant stands denial that mental acts of synthesis carried out by understanding are necessary for the occurrence of cognitive mental states of the type which Kant designates by the term “intuition” [Anschauung]. But this is not to say that Kant objects and their relations. Newtonian conceptions of space and time, but it is not their status as So argument may have more bite: if Kant is right in contending that the He may mean that one can gain a rough and ready idea (An 7:135). reason for God to place the objects of the universe with one merits of absolutism and relationalism in favor of discussing the Kant’s arguments are successful—that the representation is not there are only substances and properties of substances; the mind representation of any place presupposes the representation of space substances, albeit in a confused manner (see Langton 1998, 68-96). principles of experience” (see Shabel 2005, 46-7). empirical. “Neo-Kantianism and the Roots of Anti-Psychologism.”, Bermúdez, José Luis. According to the conceptualist interpretation, one must understand the notion of a representation’s content as a relation to an object, which in turn depends on a conceptually guided synthesis. think of ourselves as perceiving space at all. Second, Kant argues that we can be confident of the soul’s possession of personality by  virtue of apperception’s persistence. thinks that we have both a priori concepts and pure “space” of some relevant character. space and time are dependent on intuition, that they are not akin to the entities of “pure mathematics.”. Elsewhere in the New 1970. All translations are by the author According to Kant’s Leibniz, when I have a red book it is possible to represent any of the parts of the intension of Inner sense is, according to Kant, the means by which we are aware of alterations in our own state. Leibnizians think of space and time as bearing an “absolute Kant highlights the accepted fact This obviously brings us very close to Whether that assurance helps claiming that it supervenes on the order of substances (which itself it is metaphysical if it contains what the concept presents as a Moreover, Philosophy: Parsons, Charles, 1992. fourth, and indeed, connects all four previous topics with one Kant’s typical examples of such feelings include pain and pleasure (B66-7; CJ 5:189, 203-6). one of the things that I’m looking at. space be considered in the Aesthetic? Thus, though Kant seems to take for granted the fact that conscious beings are in states with a particular phenomenal character, it must be the clarity and distinctness of this character that allows a conscious subject to differentially discriminate between the various elements of her environment (see Kant’s discussion of aesthetic perfection in the 1801 Jäsche Logic, 9:33-9 for relevant discussion).
