Notably, A. White (1976), R. Stone (1988) ve B. Wood (1996) came up with important ideas on this issue. According to White, when establishing a metaphysical theory is in question, it is impossible to exclude entirely the Kantian idea of noumenon (1976, s. 53). Certainly, there are opposers of this idea, as well as many supporters of it which can not be underestimated. It is possible to sum up the common ground of the opposers as follows: “Noumena, in principle, accepted as something which can not be cognized or speculated over, becomes an unattractive topic as much as philosophical inquiry is concerned.” (Burns 2003a, s.194)
