Example text

7 “By the term impression, then, I mean all our more lively perceptions, when we hear, or see, or love, or hate, or desire, or will,” Hume 1986, p. 18. 22 chapter two An impression is a purely particular determinedness that is not related to anything else. It is immediate and in this sense is no knowledge: after all we cannot talk about knowledge without generality. However, the immediacy introduced by Hume, evokes a problem: if the impressions are the result of an immediate relation, then it is not clear how impressions can qualitatively be distinguished.

Here, it appears that Hume’s skepticism is connected to a knowledge pretention. A third problem is that Hume thinks that the objective structure of the impressions could be a criterion for the internal or mutual structure of ideas. He does not highlight in which sense this assumption can be meaningful. According to Hume, the impressions are structured in space and time. On the contrary, ideas are general and not spatial-temporal entities at all. What does it mean to impose a spatial-temporal structure upon them, the structure of the being-besides-one-another and after-oneanother?

Space is a representation of space that in each representation can be specified otherwise. If, in the image, time and space occur as pure forms, it becomes explicit that it has no meaning to say that their ordering is borrowed from an objective ordering at the level of impressions. Therefore, Kant argues that the simple ideas out of which the image is synthesized and the relation between the images is structured according to schemes that do not originate from perception, but from the understanding.
