There would be no sensory experience recognized as such if there were no
thought, hence you can argue thought is prior to experience. This is an
essentially Kantian position. The categories of experience are prior to the
content of experience.
well, according to the above (I'm splitting hairs, perhaps) one can only
really argue that thought is prior to recognized sensory experience. but
this eludes the problem of a distinction of sensory experience from thought,
as if thought is something other...
