Immanuel Kant
Soren Kierkegaard

From the Paper:

"Emmanuel Kant (1724-1804) widely acknowledged to have been one of the greatest philosophers since Aristotle in the western tradition. The rationalism of Leibniz and the empiricism of Hume mainly influenced his philosophy. His greatest work, the "Critique of pure Reason (1781), is synthesis of rationalism and empiricism both of which he believed had given a one sided view of knowledge. Kant said that it was the careful reading of Hume's empiricism and his skepticism that "interrupted my dogmatic slumbers". Having appreciated the full force of such skeptical arguments, Kant proposed that the only adequate response would be a "Copernican Revolution" in philosophy. It would be recognition that the appearance of the external world somewhat depends in some measure upon the position and movement of its observers."
