Reassessing Transcendental Logic and Pure General Logic
No Thumbnail Available
In this article, I re-examine Kant’s many senses of cognition, thought, and object in order to better understand his account of logic, and, in particular, transcendental logic. In laying out the multiple and conflicting ways Kant defines each of these terms, the relation between transcendental logic and pure general logic can be revealed as analogous to, and, indeed, linked to, the isomorphism that exists between the categories of the understanding and the logical forms of judgment, which are equivalent if one ignores the manifold of intuition. This means transcendental logic is a general logic, even as a logic of (some) cognizing.
