Kuno Fischer • A Critique of Kant
"In undertaking a criticism of the Kantian philosophy, it will be necessary, first of all, to review brie?y its fundamental principles, in order to correct any false or distorted view which might destroy the conception of the system. For we can justly criticise only what we have rightly understood. And from a critical knowledge of the system there follows the establishment of those new problems contained in it, which determine the course of the development of post-Kantian philosophy. We shall proceed, therefore, from the characterization of the Kantian doctrines to their criticism, and then deduce the problems which have led to their transformation and development. The Kantian philosophy as a whole unites in itself three fundamental features, which must be rightly conceived, and rightly combined, if we are to appreciate the full peculiarity of this philosophy which swayed the last century: they are Doctrine of Knowledge, Doctrine of Freedom, and Doctrine of Development.
