Sample text

On the one hand, judgment cannot be prior to simple apprehension because I cannot judge something of which I have no apprehension. On the other, apprehension cannot be prior to judgment because all original operations of the mind (except imagination) involve belief in the present or past existence of the object apprehended. 83 Needless to say, Rosmini takes himself to have eliminated the contradiction that arises from his interpretation of Reid. But is that interpretation accurate? On the point that concerns Rosmini, in fact, Reid does not disagree with Locke: namely, about whether judgment requires apprehension of the thing judged.

By starting with ideas in the mind and confining philosophy to analysing, synthesizing, and reflecting on ideas, psychologism reverses the order of nature, making the mind, its activities, and its contents prior and primitive, when, according to Gioberti, psychology actually presupposes a deeper ontology. Nonetheless, because Gioberti needs not just ontological but also epistemic foundations, he certainly wants the Ideal Formula to be a mental item – a judgment made by a subject and residing in the subject’s mind.

Adopting Reid’s notion of the law-like activity of mind, Kant adds that the laws applied in cognition have their origin in the mind itself. 88 Although Rosmini admires Reid as a progressive force in philosophy, he therefore accuses him of having planted the seed that grew into that poison tree. Thus, while agreeing with Reid about ‘the fact’ of what common sense reveals, he parted ways with him when the fact turned out to be rooted in naturalism. By itself, concedes Rosmini, Reid’s naturalism and nativism did not add up to full-blown subjectivism; his error was a venial sin of omission, and it did not complete the task of securing the objectivity of ideas.
