Empiricism vs. Rationalism – Kant is the quintessential empiricist. Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) has been called a revolutionary thinker. His “Copernican revolution of philosophy” was new and important because Kant synthesized rationalism and empiricism. The long standing debate between rationalists and empiricists ended with his writings, and epistemology went in a new direction. After Kant, no discussion of reality or knowledge could take place without awareness of the role of the human mind in constructing reality and knowledge.
