Title: Kant's Theory of Knowledge
This book is an attempt to think out the nature and tenability of Kant's Transcendental Idealism, an attempt animated by the conviction that even the elucidation of Kant's meaning, aprt from any criticism, is impossible without a discussion on their own merits of the main issues which he raises.
My obligations are many and great: to Caird's Critical Philosophy of Kant and to the translations of Meiklejohn, Max Muller, and Professor Mahaffy; to Mr. J.A. Smith, Fellow of Balliol College, and to Mr. H. W. B. Joseph, Fellow of New College, for what I have learned from them in discussion ; to Mr. A. J. Jenkinson, Fellow of Brasenose College, for reading and commenting on the first half of the MS. ; to Mr. H. H. Joachim, Fellow of Merton College, for making many important suggestions, especially with regard to matters of translation ; to Mr Joseph, for reading the whole of the proofs and for making many valuable corrections; and, above all, to my wife for constant and unfailing help throughout, and to Professor Cook Wilson, to have been whose pupil I count the greatest of philosophical good fortunes. Some years ago it was my privilege to be a member of a class with which Professor Cook Wilson read a portion of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, and subsequently I have had the advantage of discussing with him several of the more important passages. I am especially indebted to him in my discussion of the following topics: the distinction between Sensibility and the Understanding, the term 'form of perception' the Metaphysical Exposition of Space, Inner Sense, the Metaphysical Deduction of the Categories, Kant's account of the 'reference of representations to an object', an implication of perspective, the impossibility of a 'theory' of knowledge and the points considered. The views expressed in the pages referred to originated from Professor Cook Wilson, though it must not be assumed that he would accept them in the form in which they are there stated.
