Abstract

This paper is a phenomenological vindication of the Kantian claim concerning the Euclidean character of outer experience. The generally accepted view that the Kantian conception of space has been refuted either by the development of nonEuclidean formal geometries or by their empirical application within the framework of physical theories will be challenged. The significance of the Kantian claim for the modern Philosophy of Science will be expounded at the end of the text.
