Philosophy Talk: Intellectual Intuition in Kant’s first Critique and Samkhya Philosophy (2007; 01:20:33. Kunstverein Hildesheim)
Why does Kant think intellectual intuition is impossible for human beings, and why are the philosophies of Samkhya, Yoga and Vedanta so sure that it is? The answer lies in the contrasting conceptions of the self, objectivity, and methods of rational inquiry which each of these two perspectives ultimately presuppose. The Samkhyan conception recognizes our capacity for intellectual intuition, and so offers an account of the creative process involved in Conceptual art. Main lecture in English; short introduction and 20-minute discussion in German.
