Chapter Summary

Professor Steineck is known for his neo-Kantian critique of the generalized umwelt principle, a tool of the hierarchical theory of time. Kantian thought emphasizes the intuitive and the spiritual over the empirical and material. The hierarchical theory of time is one in natural philosophy in the tradition of Newton and Whitrow. This chapter focuses on the generalized or extended umwelt principle, a tool of the hierarchical theory of time. It talks about the schools of neo-Kantianism. The scientific and humanistic details of the hierarchical theory of time have been set forth in several books and many papers. Each such detail abides by the modes of inquiry and self-checking of the field of knowing where it is located. The extended umwelt principle conjoins into a single system of ideas that have their roots and their functions appropriate for the many compartments of human knowledge.

Keywords: extended umwelt principle; hierarchical theory of time; neo-Kantianism; Professor Steineck
