DUPLANCIC*, Victor E.. The Limits of Thinking: Hegel in Dialogue with Kant. Rev. humanid. Valpso. [online]. 2021, n.17, pp.193-208.  Epub Aug 01, 2021. ISSN 0719-4234.

From the perspective of Cartesian doubt (on the validity of sensory experience in the acquisition of scientific philosophical knowledge), this article explores the concept of the limitations of reasoning through the use of the Kantian words 'boundary' (Grenze) and 'barrier' (Schranke) in hisCritique of Pure Reason. Hegel's critical dialogue with Kant is presented focusing on the limitation that the latter imposed on reason for the acquisition of the true knowledge of philosophical/metaphysical objects. For this purpose, the Hegelian position is presented from its discussion on the second chapter (point B. Finitude) of the first section of theThe Doctrine of Being(1832) and references are made to conceptual elements of thePhenomenology of Spirit.

Keywords : boundary; barrier; finitude; frontier; dialectics; experience.
