INNER SENSE AND SELF-KNOWLEDGE book
After a period of comparatively easy going we must unfor tunately turn to one of the most difficult aspects of the Critical Philosophy-the nature of inner sense. I have deliberately kept this topic to the end.1 Kant’s primary concern throughout the Kritik is with physical objects; and if we can first of all understand his account of our knowledge of the physical world, we may at least hope that we shall be in a better position to understand his account of self-knowledge. Nevertheless it cannot be too strongly insisted that the Kritik professes to give an account of all knowledge and all experience, not merely of the knowledge or experience of physical objects; and indeed that the account of time as the form of inner sense is an integral and essential part of the whole Critical Philosophy.
