The deconstruction of Romanticism was a laudable goal. Yet the Realist-Naturalists were simply exchanging one excess for another. He inveighed, "This creates nothing new; it merely substitutes one agent of corruption for another".
There is an untranscendable boundary between reality according to the canons of art, and reality according to nature [ If the mission of art were copying the facts, exactly the way they are in real life, then art would be useless; memory would be substituted for imagination [ If an exact copying of things were the ultimate goal of art, then indeed the best novel or play would be the shorthand reproduction from a court trial [ I do not, however, suggest that we cultivate a stuffy and decadent Romanticism either However, to free oneself from the excesses of one by falling into the excesses of the other is to transform nothing.
Machado sought to forge what Peter Stowell calls "subjective objectivism". Authors present a carnivalesque vision of a supersensory truth "as far above common sense as it is above common illusion". It is most apparent in his focus on how the external reality beyond the senses is influenced by the consciousness through which it was filtered. Machado's characters are limited empiricists who are faced with perceptual ambiguity, hidden motives, and partial knowledge.
Yet they have the moral responsibility to choose from imperfectly understood alternatives. The normal causal and linear relationship between beginning, middle, and end, which characterized the traditional novel, is altered through juxtaposition, fusion, reversal, or jumbling. Machado sought to expand the boundaries of aesthetic subjectivism and aesthetic objectivism, as well as maintain the nonhierarchical nature of their relationship. His goal was to move beyond the complicity of aesthetic division in order to transform these dynamics into aesthetic reconciliation that emphasized the essential nature of aesthetic equality.

Accordingly, Machado conveyed a more nuanced relationship between various categories of difference — particularly subject and object — that distinguishes his perspective from the typical modern worldview. Accordingly, Machado's writings are singular achievements far ahead of his literary contemporaries in Brazil and Latin America.ops.mkweb.ru/public/30.php

If we return to the conceptual matrix above, it is not merely that Leibniz considers space to be the order of the possible relations among objects, and therefore to be dependent upon objects and their relations; it is also the case that he explicitly adopts the common early modern view that relations are ideal in the sense that they are somehow dependent upon the mind.
Thus Leibniz appears to deny that space is real in a Kantian sense. In what sense, then, can Leibniz be called a transcendental realist? Prima facie, it is unfair to interpret him in this way. We might return to the first description in the Critique of the Leibnizian position regarding space and time, which appears just before Kant begins the Metaphysical Exposition of Space. He asks of space and time: But then what might this idea mean in more detail?
Space is the order of the actual and possible relations of objects; since objects reflect the order of substances in some very-difficult-to-specify sense , space itself reflects the order of substances, albeit in a confused manner see Langton , Whereas a conceptual representation of this circumstance would provide one with a representation of the monadic order, sensibility misrepresents space as an independent entity.
Hence space is independent of intuition in that it is the order of relations, and that order reflects or expresses the order of substances, which itself is independent of intuition. One may think that space is independent of intuition by claiming that it supervenes on the order of substances which itself is independent of intuition ; or, one may think that space is independent of intuition by claiming that space is an independently existing entity. The former is the Leibnizian view, the latter the Newtonian. Kant suggests as much in the Transcendental Aesthetic:. In his latter letter to Clarke, Leibniz attempts to show that we can form an idea of space without relying on the notion that space is somehow independent of the relations of objects L 5: But which idea of space does he have in mind?
In other words, what is the content of the idea of space that he has in mind?
He may mean that one can gain a rough and ready idea of space—of a three-dimensional magnitude that is not itself a property of any object or grouping of objects—in the way that he describes. But surely one cannot gain the mathematical view of space in this way, for several reasons that Leibniz expresses in the New Essays as noted above: So it seems reasonable to distinguish between an ordinary, everyday conception of space—one in which we need not consider whether it is infinite or finite, infinitely divisible or finitely divisible, whether the parallel postulate holds, etc.
There can be little doubt that Kant has our geometric conception of space in mind throughout the Transcendental Aesthetic—this is clear in the third argument of the metaphysical exposition and throughout the transcendental exposition. We can then see the first two arguments in the Metaphysical Exposition as attempting to undermine 1 , and the second two arguments as attempting to undermine 2. Thus Leibniz denies that we have an a priori , singular, immediate representation of space. Instead, he thinks we begin with an empirical representation of space, remove the confused elements of that representation, and thereby obtain a clear and distinct idea, i.
1. Introduction: philosophical questions about space and time
That, therefore, our entire sensibility is nothing but the confused representation of things, which contains solely that which pertains to them in themselves, but only under a heap of marks and partial representations that we can never separate from one another consciously, is a falsification of the concept of sensibility and of appearance, which renders the entire theory of them useless and empty.
Thus Kant does not merely think that we have a non-empirical, singular, immediate representation of space. He thinks—if we borrow Leibnizian terminology—that our clear and distinct representation of space is singular and immediate. For Kant, intuition can be a genuine source of clear and distinct representations. The Leibnizians fail to recognize that intuition is a kind of objective representation, rather than a merely confused representation, one that is confused because it actually represents a state of the subject while purporting to represent objects.
This may be the right view of the sensation of secondary qualities—the Leibnizian error lies instead in assimilating all cases of perception to this kind of case, and thereby concluding that perception presents us only with confused ideas. We do not have a sensation of an infinite Euclidean magnitude! The Leibnizians lack room for this option. Kant focuses most of his critical gaze in the Aesthetic on Leibniz and the Leibnizians. This may reflect the fact that Leibniz held, as we have seen, well-developed views concerning space and time and their representation.
Newton did not hold extensive views about the representation of space and time although he had a minimal perspective on such matters. But this is not to say that Kant focused exclusively on Leibniz and his followers in the Aesthetic. He also presents two broad sorts of criticism of the Newtonian position. When discussing the Newtonian position, Kant often emphasizes those problems. Kant contends that the Newtonians conceive of space as a kind of quasi-object. He seems to return here to the classical discussion of the ontology of space mentioned at the outset of this entry.
The Hindu – Space and Sensibility
He emphasizes that on the Newtonian view, space and time are akin to substances—in that they are independent of all objects and relations, on the one hand, and independent of the mind and of intuition , on the other—and yet lack causal relations. They are also imperceptible, and certainly in the case of space, infinite. Thus for Kant, the Newtonians regard space as an infinite substance-like entity that is imperceptible and causally inert, a view that Kant regards as absurd on general metaphysical grounds.
A full discussion of it would have to range over his critical writings in metaphysics, aesthetics, teleology, and ethics. They may also be adherents of this realist position on the grounds that they do not articulate the view Kant defends in the Metaphysical Exposition, viz. But what does it mean for Kant to say that space and time are somehow dependent on intuition? One way of achieving some clarity in this domain is to fill out what Kant regards as the relevant conceptual landscape by looking to his characterization of another idealist position, that of Berkeley as he understands him.
So suppose that space is not a property of objects independent of intuition in any sense—it does not even supervene on properties of objects that are independent of intuition recall that for Leibniz, space supervenes on the monadic order because objects and relations supervene on that order. On the view I want to consider, space does not supervene on properties of objects that are independent of intuition because there are no such properties.
Suppose that space is indeed dependent on intuition, but on empirical intuition. This consideration suggests that, prima facie , Kant should not interpret Berkeley as a transcendental realist. And if that is right, what prevents Berkeley from being understood as a transcendental idealist? Correlatively, what prevents one from understanding transcendental idealism as some kind of Berkeleyan idealism about space and time?
These sorts of question can help to clarify what Kant understands by transcendental idealism, for Kant seems to view Berkeley as a fellow idealist, but one who does not defend a transcendental variety of this position. Ironically, the view that Kant is—perhaps despite his fervent denials—an idealist of the Berkeleyan variety arose in one of the first critical appraisals of the Critique , the so-called Garve-Feder review of In considering the question of why his early critics Garve and Feder interpreted him as a Berkeleyan idealist, he writes:.
And just before the Refutation of Idealism, Kant emphasizes again that Berkeley avoids transcendental realism B—see Wilson , This is a mistake, as we have seen, because Kant thinks that the representation of space cannot be empirical. It is precisely this sort of view, in turn, that Kant cites when concluding that space must be dependent on a priori intuition in some sense. So perhaps transcendental idealism is transcendental —and not merely idealist —because it contains the view that our representation of space is non-empirical as an essential component. It would seem, prima facie , that Berkeley ought to be committed to empirical idealism, and yet Kant interprets him as rejecting transcendental realism.
I take it that Berkeley avoids transcendental realism, and therefore merely empirical idealism, by defending a more radical dogmatic idealism B According to that view, there are no objects or properties that are independent of intuition. The phenomenal world of objects bearing spatial and causal relations is merely ideal.
It is perhaps in that sense that the Leibnizians are committed to empirical idealism. His view is not just that space is not a property of things independent of intuition per se , but that space is not a property of things independent of a priori intuition. This point, in turn, highlights a significant parallel between the first and second arguments of the Metaphysical Exposition and its third and fourth arguments. This indicates that Berkeleyan and Leibnizian idealist views can be construed as conceptions of the relation between space and intuition.
Whereas Berkeley takes space to be dependent on empirical intuition, Leibniz takes it to be independent of intuition per se. Finally, transcendental idealism, in so far as it concerns space and time, has the following essential component: It is improbable that we can interpret this idea correctly unless we remind ourselves that Kant rigorously distinguishes between sensation and intuition. I would especially like to thank Michael Friedman for many discussions of the issues raised in this entry.
Lanier Anderson and Lisa Shabel provided very helpful comments on the final draft. What is transcendental realism? What is transcendental idealism? In the beginning of the Transcendental Aesthetic, Kant frames his view by contrasting it with the failures of the Leibnizians and the Newtonians to conceive of space appropriately: Now what are space and time?
Are they actual entities [wirkliche Wesen]? Are they only determinations or also relations of things, but still such as would belong to them even if they were not intuited?
Or are they such that they belong only to the form of intuition, and therefore to the subjective constitution of our mind, without which these predicates could not be ascribed to any things at all?
