This chapter introduces the Transcendental Deduction as an attempt to refute the Humean view of experience by validating the categories of substance and cause. It reconstructs the first edition version of the Deduction, drawing on the work of Robert Paul Wolff. It offers two versions of this argument, treating the second version as a prolongation of the first version. It defends the argument against objections, but also shows the need for the further prolongation of the argument that takes place in the Analogies of Experience.

Keywords:   possibility of experience, Humean view of experience, unity of consciousness, Patchwork theory of the Deduction, manifold of representations, representations’ reference to an object, synthesis, temporality thesis, First Version of the Deduction, Second Version of the Deduction
