Kant and Popper. The affmity among the philosophy of Kant and the philosophy of Karl Popper has frequently been famous, and so much decisively in Popper's personal reflections on his suggestion. yet during this paintings earlier than us, Sergio Fernandes has given a cogent, complete, and tough research of Kant which differs from what we could name Popper's Kant whereas however displaying Kant as greatly a precursor of Popper. The research is without delay conceptual, even supposing Fernandes has additionally contributed to a unique historic knowing of Kant in his reinterpretation; the newness is the true results of meticulous examine of texts and commentators, characterised by means of the author's thorough command of the epistemological matters within the philosophy of technological know-how within the twentieth century up to via his mastery of the Kantian issues of the 18th. obviously, we may need to appreciate no matter if Kant is correct to Popper's philosophy of data, how Popper has understood Kant, and to what quantity the Popperian Kant has systematically or traditionally been of effect on later philosophy of technological know-how, as visible through Popper or not.

Example text

Belief, however subjectively sufficient as a conviction, is for Kant objectively insufficient; and opinion is for him insufficient in both the subjective and the objective aspects. While episteme is obtained, according to Kant, by apodeictic judgements, belief is obtained by assertoric, and opinion by problematic judgements. In empirical matters, therefore, we cannot, according to Kant, have apodeictic certainty, but at best assertoric or problematic certainty, which correspond, in their subjective aspect, to a consciousness of contingency.

Classical rationalists and empiricists alike had, however, realised that, if the ontological ground of natural necessity could be found at all, then it had to lie in a realm other than natural phenomena themselves. The idea that the ultimate explanation of appearances could not be found among appearances themselves, but had to lie at some non-sensible, deeper level of reality, goes back to the early Greek, natural philosophers. g. with the elements, with an apeiron etc. All the primitive accounts of the physis had in common, however, the explanation of phenomena in terms of a governing arche, at the same time the archaic, but in itself eternal origin of all temporal appearances, and their archetypal, or ideal logos.

There is only a special sense, perfectly compatible with all that has been said above, in which we have, for Kant, empirical and rational certainty at the same time (L, 78), though each one from a different point of view: this is the case in ordinary experience, cognitive grasp, or cognition (Erkenntnis), in which as I will argue in Chapter 5 below, there is no question of knowledge, in the sense of theoretical, or scientific knowledge. 1. ) To take Kant, as Popper does, as a belief philosopher who has not superseded subjectivism in the theory of knowledge is, therefore, unfair, to say the least.
