Kant actually did read Hume if Im not mistaken. How else would he have awoken from his "dogmatic slumber"?

And if he didnt, I will not make the same mistake. Ill actually read Hume. In fact Ill read him after I am done with Schopenhauer.


I am sorry, I was mistaken. I thought I remembered reading that Kant's exposure to Hume was through a partial translation of the Enquiry by a man named Beattie. However, I was sadly mistaken. Apparently that was only one of the sources.

If you have access to JSTOR through your university, search for "Kant's Debt to Hume via Beattie" by Robert Wolff. I must have breezed through this a couple years ago and since created some false memories.

As to how Kant would have been awoken, I thought he was awoken through the bits and pieces that Beattie published. You had said you read bits and pieces so I, more or less jokingly, compared that with what I said about Kant.

Sorry for the misinformation.

He might have been awaken via Beattie's translation, which would be pretty sad on Kant's part. Nevertheless Hume did wake him up, even if it was through bits and pieces.

I do not have access to JSTOR, but I do have access to this really nice philosophy section at Slippery Rock's library. All the philosophy I could need at this point, and a little more haha. Oh yea and Logic and History blah blah blah.
