Question for Discussion #6 – Kant to the rescue

Immanuel Kant was a happy rationalist who was particularly fond of Leibniz’ work. And then he read David Hume’s radical empiricism. According to Kant, Hume “woke me from my dogmatic slumber.” Kant was still fond of rationalism but he realized that Hume had a legitimate point. So, Kant set himself the project of figuring out how to rescue rational certainty in light of Hume’s observations about what we find in sense experience.

In your post, explain the difference between rationalism and empiricism, and how Kant tried to answer Hume. What do you think of Kant’s solution?
