#3 Kant’s work is considered one of the greatest philosophical works of all time. He established that our mind is not a passive receiver of information obtained by our eyes, ears, and other senses. Rather, our mind plays an active role in organizing and systematizing what we experience.
#4 After the publication of the Critique of Pure Reason, dissatisfaction began to be expressed with Kant’s philosophy. The first was his view of the thing-in-itself, which seemed to limit the powers of human reason.
