Example text

37 To complicate matters, the Transcendental Deduction comes in two versions, because Kant rewrote it in 1787 for the second edition of his book. For simplicity, we will only discuss the second (called the `B') version. Here, Kant introduces the notion of the transcendental unity of apperception, which is the principle that governs the possibility of any experience whatsoever, by any subject whatsoever. The unity of apperception simply states that all experience must be one experience, and all subjective consciousness must be similarly unified across its various experiences.

To claim that they do so would be to pursue the metaphysical nonsense discussed above. However, the dialectic does demonstrate that these ideas have a certain indeterminate possibility ± we also cannot have knowledge of the non-existence of such objects! This claim is made more strongly in the Antinomies section: there, the positing of the supersensible in some relation to the sensible was the critical solution to the antinomies. For example, Kant can now claim that freedom is only intelligible if we assume a supersensible ground of the human subject.

But when we look more carefully at Kant's analyses, we will find again and again that we must return to the more general topics we have just discussed. SUMMARY: A `judgement' is a mental act which in some way decides whether a thing is this or that. But there seem to be different types of judgement. A `determinate' judgement is one that has a concept in The Issues Behind the Critique of Judgement 30 advance and simply applies it to a thing. An `indeterminate' judgement is one that creates the concept in the same act as making the judgement.
