The Second Half of the Transcendental Deduction in Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason

Ideas Y Valores 58 (139):5-20 (2009)

Abstract

The Transcendental Deduction in the second edition of Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason is divided in two parts. Nevertheless, the role of the second half is not immediately clear. This article intends to examine the argument presented in the second half after clarifying its purpose. Based on this approach, we sustain an interpretation according to which Kant tries to establish the validity of categories for all intuition given through sensibility. This interpretation seeks to confirm a conceptual articulation among sensible intuitions that is not regarded as a result of objective judgment.
