One identify does des erve specified point out - Prof. Dr. H. Heimsoeth with whom the writer has mentioned a number of the very knotty difficulties of Kantian Philosophy. even if Hume has been - as Kant freely admits within the Preface to his "Prolegomena" - some of the most decisive affects and turning issues within the philosophical improvement of Kant, the writer doesn't thematize during this paintings the age-old challenge of even if Kant reaHy learn, understood and refuted Hume.

Example text

A 94: B 126. 36 37 40 HUME'S "PRINCIPLES" AND KANT'S "CATEGORIES" objective validity of the concepts. The whole complex of the deduction argument has two external determinants: The considerations of Herz center round the difficulties and inadequacies of the "Dissertation"doctrine of Kant. This was also the main content of Kanfs famous letter to Herz. The second determinant is Hume's "critique of apriori knowledge". Hume has clearly demonstrated the inadequacy of apriori consideration with regard to the problem of causality.

Conclusions from experience are not based on understanding but on some other principle which has more weight and authority. After experience has shown us the customary connections, there arises, Hume says, an operation of the soul which is unavoidable. In the absence of such an operation no "inference" is possible. And "experimental reasoning" depends on a species of instinct or mechanical power that acts in us unknown to ourselves. Thus the real seat of the causal necessity is a propensity of mind which is aroused when sensations and perceptions supply us with the materials of experience.

The most fundamental science Hume conceives of is the "science of man". 1 1 But nevertheless there can be no denial that there is also a great programmatic similarity between Hume's science of human nature and Kant's science of the pure reason. Whereas Kant is busy in furnishing the natural sciences with a philosophical explanation and foundation, Hume is more radical and tries to show the dependence of natural as weIl as mathematical sciences on that of the human nature. It is Hume's naturalism that gives a particular turn to his theory of knowledge which is critical of both reason and sense.
