Kant on Space Part 2

Scott Edgar returns to Kant’s argument from Geometry, this time examining two famous objections to it: the famous “neglected alternative” objection and a powerful objection from 20th century physics. After considering possible responses on Kant’s behalf, Scott ends with a bang, introducing Kant’s famous claim that we know things only as they appear to us, not as they are in themselves.
