Example text

The geometrical method which inspired Cartesian rationalism is unsuitable for uncovering absolute presuppositions because such principles must be defended by their success in explaining our experience, rather than being independently established by means of intellectual intuition. Unlike the deductive sciences, philosophical method cannot merely presuppose the principles which lie at the basis of the various areas of knowledge or experience; it must ‘verify’ them by checking or comparing them with the kind of experience or knowledge which they make possible.

The sceptic is not affected by Kantian heritage of Collingwood’s metaphysics 31 such considerations because what he questions is not the existence of any such criteria, but knowledge of whether they are correctly applied. 15 To understand how the kind of arguments which are sometimes attributed to Kant may fail to deliver weightier ontological conclusions, one may consider, once again, Kant’s anti-Leibnizian point in the Transcendental Aesthetic. Kant’s first argument for the necessity of the representation of space is that space is the condition of the possibility for experiencing qualitatively identical objects as numerically distinct.

In developing an anti-realist metaphysics, understood as a metaphysics without ontology, Collingwood gave philosophy a foundational role. Philosophy, for Collingwood, is not foundational in the sense that it provides indubitable principles known through the light of reason upon which the edifice of knowledge can be built. The task of philosophy is not to prepare the ground for the acquisition of empirical knowledge by securing principles from which synthetic or substantive knowledge of the world can be achieved through step-by-step deduction, but to clarify the presuppositions that the practitioners of any area of knowledge make, however covertly or implicitly.
