Your OP could allude to reification of the noumenon;
The noumenon is only directly knowable if it is reified as "real" thing that can be known as knowledge. Btw, this is all illusory.Atla wrote: ↑Sat Sep 14, 2019 7:21 pm Phenomena = appearances, and noumena = things-in-themselves, so far so good (if I understood correctly).
But did he understand that technically and objectively, all phenomena are noumena (the noumena in the human head)? So some of the noumenon is directly 'knowable'.
- But our further contention must also be duly borne in mind, namely, that though we cannot know these Objects as Things-in-Themselves, we must yet be in position at least to think them as Things-in-Themselves;*
otherwise we should be landed in the absurd conclusion that there can be Appearance without anything that appears. [Bxxvi]
So when you state "So some of the noumenon is directly 'knowable'" that implied they [forms, ideas, universals] have to be reified to be known.
