Kant and the Explanatory Role of Experience

Anil Gomes
Published Online: 2013-09-01 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/kant-2013-0020

Abstract: We are able to think of empirical objects as capable of existing unperceived. What explains our grasp of this conception of objects? In this paper I examine the claim that experience explains our understanding of objects as capable of existing unperceived with reference to Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason. I argue that standard accounts of experience’s explanatory role are unsatisfactory, but that an alternative account can be extracted from the first Critique – one which relies on Kant’s transcendental idealism.
