Sample text

One was the restriction of our domain of inquiry to the ‘island of truth’ – that is, the realm of phenomena, or objects of possible experience. Kant takes himself, by the end of the Transcendental Analytic, to have “carefully inspected each part of [this island, and] also surveyed and determined the place for each thing in it” (B294). Another was the completion of the Transcendental Deduction, designed to show that our cognitive faculties were guaranteed to be adequate for secure mastery of this restricted domain.

But by his own argument in the Schematism, this containment technique appears not to work. The rules regress indicates that the imagination must find order within sensibility without being governed by discursive rules. But now it seems that we should need a transcendental deduction of the legitimacy of the principles of schematization, whatever those are, as well. If we are to be certain both that the imagination is up to the task of finding order in sensuous presentations and that its principles for doing so have objective validity, presumably we need a transcendental deduction of its principles, just as we had for the categories of the understanding.

If we insist that intuition is indeed is a “mere given” or something like unschematized content, then it will not be able to give guidance to empirical judgment. If we posit a separate source of structuring principles, as Kant seems to do in the Schematism and the Analytic of Principles, then we end up with a third man problem, as it becomes unclear how these new principles could produce a structured presentation that is both suited to subsumption under concepts and accountable to the objects encountered in intuition.
