Examination of Knowing

(p.59) II. Examination of Knowing
Implications of the Philosophy of Kant

Krishnachandra Bhattacharyya

Oxford University Press

This chapter is concerned with the active nature of knowledge, and uses Indian philosophy to interpret the primary conclusions of the Critique of Pure Reason. It first presents a working definition of the term ‘knowledge’ before it studies the two types of knowledge and the significance of Kant's views on ‘knownness’ and ‘reality’. Next, it discusses ‘manifestation’, certainty, knowledge of objects, and the act of knowing. It emphasises that the phenomenal world is composed of knowing, and lists the constituents of knowledge. The latter half of the chapter focuses on reason, specifically the justification of the three ideas of reason and the ideas of reason as objects of contemplation.

Keywords:   knowledge, Indian philosophy, knownness, reality, manifestation, knowing, phenomenal world, reason
