Student's post

Phenomenalism is a view which was heralded by Immanuel Kant in which he saw that physical objects are not able to exist in themselves. Instead, they require perceptual phenomena or sensory stimuli existing within time and space. With this Kant attempts to prove an empiricist idea that knowledge begins with our senses, yet with a rationalist claim in that, the mind is a source of knowledge of the universal law. So forth the mind is not tabula rasa, it does not come pre-informed but instead has an organization so that it may insert rational sense impressions as structures in our world. To perceive an object our minds collect and remember sensations over time, all the while being aware to attribute these towards the correct objects. To remember and be aware of these sensations our mind must be a collective consciousness that endures through time. Because our mind is of collectiveness it then knows the many sensations we perceive only as it connects through our collective world or mirroring interrelated objects. Knowledge only presents itself as it appears to us, we see therefore we know. A response to this is that while the mind constructs reality as we know it, it does through history, culture, and language rather than creation based on rational structures of the mind.
