- Kantâ€™s Copernican Revolution in Thought
- How did this revolution in thought differ from the traditional view of knowledge of the time?
- How did Kant’s discovery of the synthetic a priori aid and support his Transcendental Idealism?
- In what ways does his account of sensible intuition and categories (concepts) of the understanding support his position about the structure and content human knowledge?
- What is his distinction between phenomena and noumena and how do they support his position about the limits of human understanding & what we can know?
- What implications would the ideas of pure reason concerning God, World, and Soul have for Kant’s view of metaphysics.
- Hegel’s view of World Spirit
- Explain the historical development and process of consciousness that Hegel uses to overcome the Kantian split between phenomena and noumena.
- What is meant by an internalized epistemology that leads Hegel to the idea of historicaldevelopment of consciousness and a phenomenology of mind?
- What are the implications of this process for an internal dialectic?
- How does self-consciousness arise from the relation between self and other?
- What were the limits historically in Stoic and Skeptical consciousness that lead to an Unhappy Consciousness that Christianity attempted to solve?
- How does all of this develop eventually into the realization that reason in itself, is identical with all reality and involved in a process in which â€œGodâ€ is coming to comprehend itself though us”?
