Kieshana Joan Miles Dr. Marcos Arandia Philosophy 1301 Lesson 6 Reflection: Post Reading Reflection Questions CHAPTER 11 1. Why did Kant think it necessary to posit the existence of the noumenally world? According to Kant reality is organized by human understanding (Ch.11, Pg. 324) and in order to establish the true limitations of reason. Phenomenal reality is a term Kant used to describe the world through how we experience it, this is typically judged by observations formed through five senses, through those senses are we able to describe the noumenally reality. Opposed to experience, noumenally existence is based on perceptions otherwise known as objective reality (Ch.11, Pg. 324). Through the perceptions you can form understanding of human reasoning. Kant uses this to show us the boundaries of human understanding that there needs to be connections somewhere with both human reality as it correlates to pure reality. 2. How does Kant answer Hume’s bundle theory of the self? Do you think he is successful? Due to Hume’s thinking his analysis of rationalistic belief and principles Hume appeared to further illustrate that his theories were extremely opposite enlightening people, and caused many to not feel positive about them . Since Hume challenged rational thinking, Kant believed the opposite. Kant expressed that the concept of “sentiments, convenience, comfort and other personal factors” is the sole reason that drives cogent behavior. (Ch. 11, Pg. 336) Kant could be considered to have gone against the grain, and his theory of self challenged Hume’s completely. 3. Describe the moral dimension as Kant understood it. In the text moral is refers to what people consider good or bad, right or wrong. (Ch. 11, Pg. 315) Through those perceptions of what society can consider what universal good is or bad based on morals instilled. According to Kant moral dimension or his considered moral philosophy is based on the fundamental agreement that morality relies on agreement of what is indictable or what can be pardoned. Kant ultimately believes that the purpose of morality is based on the obligation of one’s philosophy, that it is not discretion to act with morality but it is a responsibility for humanity to act in a certain way and in that way that is ultimately geared towards good, and in that goodness, the foundation of freedom to do good and moral actions can be agreed upon.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
