A fundamental tenet of Kant’s critical philosophy is that human cognition has two stems, sensibility and understanding. This is stressed early on in the Critique of Pure Reason 1 and never lost sight of. The understanding thinks by means of concepts, but in order for us to obtain cognition there must be some independent source of representations that give us access to objects, so that the concepts can be applied to something.
