Immanuel Kant

I read the Critique of Pure Reason in the best way that I could about fifteen years ago, and I don't even remember why I started it.  Grammar, spelling, vocabulary, pronoun antecedent relationships and other English, mechanical values were all that I could get out of it.  It served me informally as a corpus for a study in speech communication or linguistics, and pretty much I ignored all the ideas about epistemology, phenomenology or whatever I gathered as content.  My reading was just  after I had been an English teacher for a year living abroad with a community of language students and translators.  

I thought that he explained how my mind had parts, but I didn't know that they were so neatly divided as he seemed to presume.  I presumed that my mind was like any other mind at least to the extent which he makes reference.
