Apperception, Self-Consciousness, and Self-Knowledge in Kant

  • Dennis SchultingEmail author
Part of the Palgrave Handbooks in German Idealism book series (PHGI)


Schulting concentrates on two connected elements of Kant’s theory of self-consciousness: the transcendental conditions for establishing the identity of self-consciousness, which first enables the awareness thereof, namely self-consciousness strictly speaking, and the relation between self-consciousness and self-knowledge. Schulting shows that Kant’s view of the identity of self-consciousness is in fact not derivative, and that instead it shows how any account of self-consciousness and the identity of self is first made possible by transcendental consciousness or transcendental apperception.
