Definition Of:

Kant, Immanuel

Philosophy DictionaryDictionary of Philosophy of Mind
(b. 1724, d. 1804). Kant's early philosophy of mind included rational and empirical psychologies and offered a solution to the mind/body problem. Later, Kant offered a strong critique of rational psychology and took a broadly skeptical attitude towards knowledge of the soul and the mind/body relation.

Philosophy DictionaryTheological and Philosophical Dictionary
(1724-1804) German philosopher; tried to unite rationalism and empiricism ; wrote 1. Religion Within the Bounds of Reason, 2. Critique of Pure Reason, 3. Critique of Practical Reason, and 4. Critique of Judgment. Regarding his theory of reality: reality as "thing-in-itself" (Ding an sich) or as noumena is unknowable. Noumena present themselves to minds as phenomena which are knowable. Phenomena are the joint product of mind and sense data. Phenomena are possible only because mind is capable of ordering them in space and time. Mind knows only what it orders in space and time according to the principle of causality as phenomena or experience. Mind cannot know what it is as "thing-in-itself." Mind knows only phenomena .
