Philosophers Index Abstract

    The thought experiment1 chiefly explored is that of Condillac: what would we know if we had only one sense, what if two, what if we had no memory, what if we did, etc. How would the world appear to us in these various circumstances. Condillac's influence on Kant and others is explored.
