In their empirical use concepts are applied to sensible objects, which may be described as appearances, or, more technically, phenomena. In their transcendental use concepts are appliedor such at least is the intention-to things as they are in them selves and as they can be grasped by understanding without the aid of sense. Such objects are called ‘noumena’, that is, understandable or intelligible (and not sensible) objects. Thus the opposition between phenomena and noumena corresponds to the opposition between the empirical and the transcendental use of concepts.
