Geometry, Space, and Transcendental Idealism

(p.26) 2 Geometry, Space, and Transcendental Idealism
Kant's Theory of Knowledge

Georges Dicker (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter expounds Kant’s view of space in contrast to those of Newton and Leibniz, and explains how Kant was led to this view by an argument from geometry. It explains how his view of the ideality of space led to his broader doctrine of Transcendental Idealism. It offers criticisms of Transcendental Idealism in its strong form and proposes a philosophically more defensible “weak” form of Transcendental Idealism.

Keywords:   space, time, a priori (form of) intuition, argument from geometry, Transcendental Idealism, Strong Transcendental Idealism (“Strong TI”), Weak Transcendental Idealism (“Weak TI”), unobviously analytic
