22 Thus, as Hannah Ginsborg puts it, “intuitions are structured or synthesized by the imagination in a way that allows for the representation of generality” (my emphasis). These essays ask what such activity of the imagination might consist of, and how its results can achieve objective validity while avoiding circularity (using discursive rules to structure intuition so as to make it suitable for subsumption under discursive rules). While Ginsborg shows how Kant’s version of this problem has deep roots in eighteenth-century empiricism, Manning and Okrent show its tight connections to a crucial set of debates in contemporary philosophy of mind and epistemology, which ask how our receptive, sensuous contact with the empirical world can play a properly authoritative role in enabling objective judgment and concept application.
