The discussion of classical prejudices has thus far been carried out against empiricism. In fact, empiricism has not been our sole target. It must now be shown that intellectualism, its antithesis, stands on the same ground. Both take the objective world as their object for analysis, which comes first neither in time nor according to its sense; both are incapable of expressing the particular manner in which perceptual consciousness constitutes its object. When it comes to perception, rather than sticking closely to it, they both keep their distance.
