Winston Churchill

Thanks to his gift of foresight, he first appreciated the importance of armored and air forces in modern warfare, and political intuition allowed him to predict the threat posed by carrying humanity fascism. The future winner in two wars, was born November 30, 1874 in Blenheim ancestral castle, which belonged to an ancient race Churchill, his father – Lord Randolph – the third son of the seventh Duke of Marlborough and is therefore not inherited this high-sounding title, which passed in England only the eldest son. But in any case belonged to Winston Churchill to a narrow circle of the English aristocracy, and his mother was American – the daughter of an American millionaire Leonard Jerome. In childhood no one could have predicted that this restless, extremely stubborn and self-assured boy awaits a great future. At school, he studied very poorly, and even in mature years, did not hesitate to recognize in his autobiography that was a very bad student. He received an appropriate education first at home, then in a closed private school in Ascot and Harrow.

It is true that Churchill's dislike for Latin closed his way to Cambridge or Oxford – the most famous British universities, but he finished military school at Sandhurst – the British officers forge. In 1895 he began serving a hussar regiment. But soon Churchill leaves the army to enter politics. In 1900 he was elected a member of the House of Commons. At 33, he entered the cabinet, becoming Minister of Commerce, and two years later was appointed minister of internal affairs in England. .

Opposite Intuition

Such ostensive modest definition hides the central importance of the concept of representation in the critical philosophy. One better idea of its value can be gotten through the classification of representations that if presents in another part of the Critical one of the pure reason: The sort is the representation in general (representatio). Under it is the representation with conscience (perceptatio). A perception that if it relates solely to the citizen while modification of its state is the sensation (sensatio); an objective perception is knowledge (cognitivo).

This or is intuition or concept (intuitus vel conceptus). What the Kants flame of representations with conscience are called perceptions, that are divided in sensations, or those that if they only relate to the citizen as modification of its state, and in objective perceptions. Kant criticizes, before, the point of view of Leibniz which sensitivity was the confused representation of the things. Kant argues that, for the opposite, sensitivity and its sensations were the appearance of something and the way as we are affected by this something. The objective perception is divided in intuition and concept, becoming related first it ‘ ‘ … immediately with the object and is singular’ ‘ . Already as, the concept, is mentioned in mediate way to the object by means of a signal that can be common to some things.

As much the intuition how much the concept is produced by a espontaneidade act. The intuition, given before all thought, supplies a field in which the multiple of the intuition can appear as a representation. It is, however, the concept that synthecizes the representations in experience and knowledge. The application of a concept to an intuition in judgment is not another thing seno the representation of an object. I think, that, in Kant, it is the originary and supreme transcendental unit of the autoconscincia, I am that he allows the occurrence of the judgment, understood as a representation that must be capable to follow all the other representations.
