La dottrina delle categorie nella Erkenntnislehre di Stumpf

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
This essay aims at an analysis of Stumpf’s doctrine of categories. In Erkenntnislehre Stumpf argues that all categories empirically stem from outer and inner perception. Although Stumpf champions an empiricist explanation of the matter, he firmly rejects associationism. In his conception of the origin of categories, including substance, Stumpf builds on the assumption that human perception behaves dynamically. Sensory experience consists indeed essentially of perceptual wholes. The analysis of Stumpf’s theses is of great importance for our thorough understanding of his philosophy. His theory regarding this crucial philosophical topic diverges considerably from Brentano’s.
