This chapter presents Anukul Chandra Mukerji’s 1927 essay, “The Realist’s Conception of Idealism,” in which he develops an intersubjective, realistic idealism based on Kantian and Vedānta philosophy. He first considers the distinction between idealism and realism before turning to a discussion of the metaphysics and psychology of mind. He then examines the concept of cognitive relation and the problem of external perception, along with the nature and status of the sensa. He also explores the contrast between empiricism and criticism in connection with the ultimate principles of knowledge and existence. Along the way, Mukerji pays attention to the views of a number of thinkers such as Immanuel Kant, Rene Descartes, and David Hume.

Keywords:   philosophy, Anukul Chandra Mukerji, Vedānta, idealism, realism, cognitive relation, perception, sensa, Immanuel Kant, David Hume
