Abstract

Did Kant Have a Theory of Self-Knowledge ? by Michael C. Washburn (Indiana University at South Bend) Due largely to the work of Strawson, there has been a good deal of discussion in recent years of Kant's theories of the self and of self-knowledge, two of the most difficult and neglected areas within the province of the critical philosophy. The present paper is addressed to the second of these two topics. The original purpose behind it was to determine how Kant understood the problem of self-knowledge, that is to say, in his own terms and from the vantage point of the critical system (both completed and planned). My investigation met with some success, though it led me places that I could never have expected -- for example, to the Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science. In particular, I came across some intriguing facts, previously unknown, that shed a good deal of light on Kant's own efforts to construct a theory of self-knowledge. I present these findings with the hope that they will contribute significantly to any further discussion of this important issue. I have tried to answer two separate questions: (1) How did Kant understand the problem of self-knowledge
