Sample text

It cannot consist simply in reality’s impressing itself on our minds, for in order for this to result in knowledge of reality, there would have to be something about us which made us appropriately receptive to it: our minds would have to be capable of transforming the impress of reality into a representation of it. That is, we would have to be already immanently related to reality. Nor does it help to reverse the story and conceive our contact with reality as the result of our own activity, since in order for our minds to reach out and read off the features of reality, we would have to know how to locate and read it - and again this condition could not be fulfilled unless reality were already an immanent object for us.

In my dissertation I was content to explain the nature of intellectual representations in a merely negative way, namely, to state that they were not modifications of the soul brought about -28- by the object. However, I silently passed over the further question of how a representation that refers to an object without being in any way affected by it can be possible. I had said: The sensuous representations present things as they appear, the intellectual presentations present them as they are. But by what means are these things given to us, if not by the way in which they affect us?

Kant does not intend to merely assume the truth of transcendental idealism at the outset and trace its consequences. Recognising that something positive must be done to establish his metaphysic, Kant describes it as the ‘main purpose’ of the Critique, not merely to articulate, but to prove the doctrine of transcendental idealism (Bxxii). Two attempted proofs are presented: an ‘apodictic’ proof in the Transcendental Aesthetic and Transcendental Analytic, concerned with space and time and the concepts of the understanding (Bxxii[n]); and an ‘indirect’ proof in the Antinomy of Pure Reason, according to which the assumption that the objects of knowledge are things in themselves leads unavoidably to contradictions (Bxx).
