What is Chapter 3 about?

Is Chapter 3 about knowing the world or is that the subject of Chapter 5, "Knowing the World". Chapter 3 ends with questioning if we can know anything about the world. It merely establishes that we can know our own thoughts. Chapter 3 is a study of thought, its role in world conception, and pure thinking.
"The purpose of my reflection is to form concepts of the event."
"Thought may play a minor role in the coming about of world phenomena, but it certainly plays a major role in the formation of a view about them."
"Most people today find it difficult to grasp the concept of pure thinking."
"I can understand someone doubting whether we can come to any conclusion about the world by means of thought, but I find it incomprehensible that anyone can doubt the correctness of thought in itself."
