I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Does Kant Adequately Address the Problems Evident in the Controversy between Empiricism and Rationalism. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Rationalists claim that very independent we gain knowledge and ideas. This independent way of gaining concepts as it is own sensory experience. Empiricists claim on the other side that sense experience is the final source of all our knowledge and ideals.
When empiricists say that we are only able to access appearances, they are not saying that we only have access to illusory representations. To some level denying some confidence in their explanations, in this case, they ought to have been clear on this matter. Nonetheless, for Kant, appearances can, and in fact, do provide us with the ground for knowledge on facts and ideas. To him, the mind is the source of experience and knowledge, Descartes. This is the concept, according to Kant, the concept of purity of categories. This is particularly clear in the sense that the mind makes contributions to experiences. The mind plays a significant role and imposes on experience certain categories that make knowledge possible. In this case when Kant says that we cannot know the thing in itself he does not only mean that reality is inaccessible but also that we cannot experience anything outside in the way human mind operates Ann. And from this explanation it is not a wrong concept, “but it justifies how human beings acquire knowledge”. Now, we have a look science and advancements in knowledge, it is evident that we have knowledge. Kant would never have denied it.
Rationalist, in the real sense, has developed the argument in two ways. They say that there are circumstances when the content embodied in knowledge outstrips the information that can be provided in the real-life experience. Also, they have built in some way, that reason in some form provides information and knowledge to the world. .
