Geoffrey Warnock discusses the philosophy of anti-empiricist Immanual Kant and his view that activities and powers within the mind are the key to knowledge and that all knowledge is appearance. Countering Hume, Kant insists it is the mind, not the senses, which unifies and organizes sensory flow into meaningful definitions of things. Dist: Films Media Group. 1987. 45 min.
