Venne spesso osservato che speranza e' connesso alla speranza sia in termini 
della etimologia del nome della sciagurata, mentre il cocciuto element della 
verace realta' e' daggia' la mancanza di ogni speranza da parte della signorina 
speranza che rifiuta ogni cogitatare che non venga da lessemi idiotic scritti 
da uno scemo

In a message dated 9/12/2014 4:29:01 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, 
donalmcevoyuk@xxxxxxxxxxx writes in "Re: consider": "it is not a mere  
"intellectual construct" but a fact of reality that there are both phenomena 
and  noumena. 
In other words, noumena exist 'noumenalogically' and not at all as an 
"intellectual construct" of any sort (the idea that Kant's noumena are an 
"intellectual construct" would be to collapse Kant's "transcendental  idealism""
 
So, I submit that Kant wasn't thinking too logically when he chose the terms 
'Phainomenon' and 'Noumenon' for his distinction. Admittedly, he also talks of 
the 'thing' which he feels the necessity to qualify 'in itself' (Ding  an 
sich), and which I'm sure is listed in many a philosophical lexicon. It seems  
more clear to speak of 'things in themselves' than 'noumena', given that 'nous' 
 is invariably linked with 'thought' in most European languages!
 
Cheers,
 
Speranza
