Not illustrated. 1899 edition. Excerpt: ... HEGEL HE connection between the two sides of Kant's doctrine, his analysis of the facts of experience, and his recognition of thingsin-themselves, was not a logical one. Logically, as events show, he ought to have ceased to hold to the latter, and it was only his strong feeling for reality which prevented him from doing this. It was very quickly pointed out, however, that his position was inconsistent. The idea of cause, he had said, holds solely within experience; it tells us nothing whatever about things-in-themselves, and is empty and abstract so long as it is not supplied with the material of sense. But why do we believe in things-in-themselves at all? Practically because the material of sense finds no explanation within experience, and requires to be furnished from without, or, in other words, to have an outside cause. This was the assumption of rationalism, that the possibility of this external reference in knowledge was to be explained, if at all, by having recourse to a deliverance of the rational nature; and although Kant's principles forbade him still to hold this explanation, yet as it never occurred to him to go behind it, and inquire whether there might not be some different way of reaching the same result, he had no other account of the process to suggest. And consequently, while he felt that he was in the right, and to the end refused to give up his belief, he really had no answer to make when it was pointed out by his critics that he was requiring us to hold that we are led to a supersensible reality through the category of cause, at the same time that this category is declared to have no possible application to such a reality.
