Hence, knowledge of an object is something that one could not have unless one was already equipped with concepts to some extent (Hamlyn 1999, 57–58). 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.
