Aries Tottle's mode, in a word, was based on noumena; Hog's on phenomena.
Does Mr. Mill really suppose that all noumena are self-existent?
There is the world of appearance (phenomena), and there is the world of reality or substance (noumena).
We may begin with the passages in the chapter on phenomena and noumena.
All noumena are there before we arrive at an understanding of them.
The difficulty arises from a confusion between the spheres of phenomena and noumena.
Positive science deals only with phenomena, yet you are foolish enough to strive to be ontologists and to deal with noumena.
Nor have we any right to reason from phenomena to noumena, or to say that the former authenticate the latter.
Though it reappears in the chapter on phenomena and noumena, it does so in a passage which Kant excised in the second edition.
We may not therefore assert the existence of noumena, but we must none the less form to ourselves the concept of them.
