what is kants compromise?

“Kant’s Compromise” is a name for the fact that the philosopher Immanuel Kant is generally viewed as creating a middle ground between the warring philosophical outlooks of (Continental) Rationalism, as epitomized by French philosopher RenĂ© Descartes, and (British) Empiricism, as epitomized by Scottish philosopher David Hume. The former emphasized the mind, and the use of reason and other mental faculties as the primary way of relating to the world. The latter focused instead on sensory experience and direct evidence. Kant’s Compromise, stated roughly, is that both (sensory evidence and reason/judgment) are necessary.
