A Philosophical Model of the Relation between Things in Themselves and Appearances

Noûs 49 (4):643-664 (2015)
I introduce a methodology for doing the history of philosophy called philosophical modeling. I then employ this methodology to give a theory of Kant's distinction between things in themselves and appearances. This theory models Kant's distinction on the distinction between a constituting object and the object it constitutes.
