In other words, the uncovering of the object as emerging from the fabric of usability and handiness, opens up the possibility to comprehend the manner in which it comes into being and is granted its concrete identity. Instead of being conceived as an isolated entity, the object is now seen an entity belonging to a layered structure. Thus opened, the object as an entity is restored into being, into the ontological array.
However, as we have already seen, if any knowledge of objects is to be possible, intuition alone is not enough, as knowledge requires us to combine intuition with concepts. Only when intuitions are represented by concepts, is our knowledge of objects made possible. In the world available to human experience, concepts (the categories) are already a priori suited to object possibilities, even though one might ask how the a priori concepts consciousness has about objects become bound to the sensory intuition of any particular object.
