Time, self-consciousness, and categorial unity

  • Atul Satija

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis (MPhil)


These essays are an attempt to elucidate the notion of a category, which, broadly speaking, is a concept that accounts for the manner in which the constituents of experience are combined or held together. The relation of such concepts to the unity of self-consciousness and the unity of time is explicated in order to consider the possibility of synthetic a priori knowledge.
