Transcript of Kant

Effect on Sophie
Don't believe everything you see
Glasses of reason
You want to act the way someone else would if they were in your situation, only then are you following your moral law
You are never allowed to manipulate anyone no matter what to achieve the rational goals of another
Elements of Knowledge
External conditions: knowledge we can't know until we perceive them
Internal Conditions: Conforming to Law of causality
No freedom if we live only as creatures of the senses, however if we obey universal reason we are free and independent
Perception of Reality
We can perceive experiences ourselves but we can't know the experience in itself "das Ding an sich"
Created a fine line between "das Ding an sich" and how experiences appear to us
Factors in our mind affect our views on reality
"the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me"

Locke: What we perceive is what it actually is

Hume: We can't be so sure
Core Ideas

Perception of reality
Law of Causality
