Ok, so I like haikus.
Here are some haikus about Kant:
Kant claims that space is The things that appear
transcendentally ideal are spatiotemporal
empirically real 'tis no illusion
representations The I-Think can be
modifications in us with each representation
that's how they appear?! or else it ain't mine
derived from forms of judgment?
or forced to fit them?
Inner sense misled, The B-deduction
ignored apperception. seems less idealistic than
Hume's fatal error? the previous one
Garve reviewed first book
to which Kant harshly replied:
Henry Allison: The things in themselves
transcendental idealism considered differently
is epistemic are things that appear
The crucial notion:
is somewhat obscure
James van Cleve believes appearances are
Kant's really like
in our representations Berkeley
a true idealist virtual objects
Rae Langton maintains The appearances
transcendental idealism are extrinsic properties
is Humility the forces of things
Why be so Humble?
Ignorance of the Inner
She blames causation
Jonathan Bennett: Things we cannot see
Kant's a phenomenalist still belong to possible
It's all in the head! experiences
Other historical haikus:
Leibniz asserted Hume looked for himself
that monads have no windows but could find no impression
each mirrors the rest No idea of "I"
has said Berkeley
the body infinitely that the material world is
the mind not at all composed of God's thoughts
all this you can doubt sensory features
your body, the world are lost identified with ideas
's error Berkeley
Locke's ideas are veils Don't like skepticism?
that obscure our perception then put the world in your mind
of things outside us then you can see it!
that the meaning of being
is not what it seems
Ryle said: Descartes's view Ryle: to have a mind
is a category mistake is to have behavior that
"mind" picks out no thing we call purposeful
Arithmetic fell Russell and Whitehead
when Russell showed to Frege had a remarkable view
a contradiction that maths is logic
Jeremy Bentham Francis H. Bradley
said pleasure is the sole good had trouble with relations
forget quality and so lived alone
The mind is the brain The worlds of Lewis
this some philosophers have claimed though merely possible
Place, Smart, then Armstrong contain flesh and blood
