(p.234) Chapter VII Ideality
Kant's Theory of Mind

Karl Ameriks (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the most general aspects of Kant's discussion of the self and gives an overview of the full range of topics that he covered in his philosophical discussion of ‘psychological’ issues. There are two especially important issues requiring further discussion here: apperception and idealism. I explain the significance of Kant's Critical distinction between ‘apperception’ and ‘inner sense’, and discuss different views on how these terms might be defined. I then discuss the radical nature of Kant's claim about the transcendental ideality of all our determinate theoretical self‐knowledge, and evaluate various hypotheses about how to interpret transcendental idealism in general.

Keywords:   apperception, essence, idealism, inner sense, passivity, self‐knowledge, species, temporality, transcendental
