Both these claims, however, are readily accounted for on Schopenhauer’s behalf in terms of Evans’s view while fully acknowledging the conceptual/non-conceptual distinction. Other than dropping his reliance on the doctrine of abstraction, he would have to abandon the Kantian view of concepts as rules for classifying things, which, as pointed out by Young (2005), does not preclude that some of these rules are biological products of evolution also possessed by non-linguistic animals. While his examples of this knowledge hover between knowledge we do not and knowledge we cannot articulate in words, it is the latter that, as Young puts it, makes his discussion of non-linguistic animals the crux of the matter (Young 2005, 44–45).
The consequence of the action of every material object on another is known only in so far as the latter now acts on the immediate object in a way different from that in which it acted previously; it consists in this alone. Thus cause and effect are the whole essence and nature of matter; its being is its acting … The substance of everything material is therefore appropriately called in German Wirklichkeit, a word much more expressive than Realität (WWR I, 8–9), because it connotes efficacity or effectiveness rather than merely the logical status of being the object of an affirmation (as the category of Realität does for Kant) (see CPR, A 70/B 95 and A 80/B 106).
