Controversy Over Kant

Controversy Over Kant

(p.107) 6 Controversy Over Kant
Late German Idealism

Frederick C. Beiser

Oxford University Press

Chapter 6 is devoted to the Fischer-Trendelenburg dispute, which was one of the most infamous philosophical disputes of Kant scholarship. This dispute concerned the famous “third alternative”, i.e., whether it is possible for the Kantian a priori forms of space and time to correspond with things-in-themselves, so that the forms of space and time would not be just subjective (1st alternative) or just objective (2nd alternative) but both subjective and objective (3rd alternative). The origin of the dispute is discussed and all its major phases are described, all the while trying to keep in focus the main philosophical issues.

Keywords:   Fischer-Trendelenburg dispute, third alternative
