Immanuel Kant (1724 - 1804) said that what humans experience consciously is determined by the interaction of sensory information with the categories of thought. Immanuel Kant believed that experiences such as those of unity, causation, time, and space could not be derived from sensory experience and therefore must be attributable to innate categories of thought . He also believed that morality is, or should be, governed by the categorical imperative . He did not believe psychology could become a science because subjective experience could not be quantified mathematically.
