This ‘noumenal’ realm is central to Kant’s project, for it makes possible free will, morality, and sensory appearances as well. qxp 4/21/2008 2:43 PM Page 44 44 Dewey: A Beginner’s Guide Kant’s solution was unacceptable to Dewey for one other important reason. On Kant’s account, the sensations which are necessary ingredients of knowledge are, initially, inherently inchoate. This sensory flux is never observed because it must first be formatted by mental categories to be experienced at all. But by what argument, Dewey objects, can we assume that sensation is initially like this?

What is truth? qxp 4/21/2008 2:43 PM Page 41 Inquiry 41 opinion (temporary or mistaken) but real knowledge (permanent and certain)? Is knowledge even possible? Such questions are typical of ‘epistemology’ (the study of knowledge), and have long been identified by many with the aims of philosophy itself. 1 Instead, he approaches issues of belief, knowledge, and truth from an evolutionary standpoint. Seen in this light, such concepts must be interpreted within the context of a dynamic, natural world where creatures struggle to adapt and thrive.

So far we have seen that one’s assumption of a two-tiered model of reality leads to the belief that knowledge itself has a special and ultimate metaphysical status. However, there is a second consequence of assuming the two-tiered model, and this too helps explain why Dewey’s naturalist epistemology was resisted so vehemently. Those who investigate the phenomenon of knowing with a deep-rooted belief in a two-tiered reality unconsciously start their inquiry from a standpoint that is deeply prejudiced toward what is permanent over what is changing.
