An Essay concerning Human Enquiry: Exploring the Intersection of Hume and Kant — Perception, Causation and the Limits of Human Understanding
The study of metaphysics is not merely an activity of, or for, the speculative philosopher, whatever the activity, quality or temperament may be which would differentiate such a person from the rest of humanity. Nor is it quite right to say metaphysics is for all of humanity. More accurately, metaphysics is humanity. It is the search into existence, our existence within that existence, and our understanding of these existences. That is, how do we know what (or that) we know? This was a key question for Hume and Kant, and one which we shall consider. This essay, therefore, is a philosophical enquiry into human enquiry itself. We shall ask, how is it — and to what extent do — we understand our world?
