Sample text

26 What is at issue in Heidegger's approach to the Cartesian model, then, is not engaging in arguments and counter arguments within the framework of the common-sense view of our epistemic predicament, but rather re-evaluating the assumptions underlying that framework itself. If the common-sense picture of stage I is a philosophical construct, it will contain from the start certain philosophical presuppositions that pave the way for the skeptic's findings and prescribe in advance the plausibility of the stage III redescription of our epistemic predicament.

Rickert's concept of "validity" is a purely epistemological notion, as it was for Lotze before him. It is introduced to account for the ways that laws can be universally binding and is therefore supposed to be metaphysically neutral, beyond both realism and nominalism. Rickert also wants to leave the concept of the "transcendental subject" or "consciousness in general" metaphysically neutral. The subject is posited solely in order to justify the construction of cross-cultural and transhistorical values that are the a priori imperatives of thought.

Since the second and third stages of the inquiry seem to be in order and since the counterintuitive results of the inquiry suggest that something is going wrong at some stage in the Cartesian inquiry, it is reasonable to focus on the stage I description of our everyday situation. ,,25 It may be the case that the plain, common-sense description of our lives at the very outset of the Cartesian inquiry is already infected by philosophical assumptions that misrepresent our everyday situations in the world.
