What is the difference between idealism and empiricism in philosophy?
Idealism (Kant, Descartes, Plato, …) thinks that knowledge comes from the subject.
Empiricism (Hume) asserts that the truth comes from experience.
Transcendental idealism (Kant, Husserl) is a variant of classical idealism: the subject is the object, not the reverse.
