Immanuel Kant is one of the most important (and challenging) philosophers in history, both for his epistemology (the subject of the first half of the readings) and for his ethics (which we will cover a bit later). In this discussion forum, see if you can help each other make sense of the Kantian analysis (which he called “critique”) that combines both reason and experience in order to avoid what Kant sees as the errors of empiricism and rationalism. You can also think about whether Kant effectively completes the “epistemological turn” in philosophy with his “Copernican revolution” in philosophical thought. Is there still more to be said that Kant overlooks, or did the rationalists or the empiricists already put us on the right path, so that we don’t need the Kantian innovation?
And of course raise any other questions or observations that you would like to put out ther
