(p.15) 2 Locke’s Internal Sense and Kant’s Changing Views
Kant’s Thinker

Patricia Kitcher (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses three questions about the doctrine of ‘inner sense’ that Kant adapted from Locke: Why did he originally believe that a Lockean inner sense was crucial for a theory of rational cognition? Why did he then demote ‘inner sense’ in the Critique and introduce ‘transcendental apperception’ as the key faculty in cognition? How do recent criticisms of inner sense theories affect Kant’s residual uses of the notion?

Keywords:   Locke, inner sense, rational cognition, inner sense, apperception
